Nige­rian del­e­gates… take note

Daily Trust - - OPINION -

With keen ob­ser­va­tion, I have ob­served that when­ever the Pres­i­dent of Nige­ria goes on an of­fi­cial visit to a coun­try, you will no­tice that the en­tourage that goes with the Pres­i­dent does not go with writ­ing pads to take notes, whereas that of the host coun­try is fully kit­ted with writ­ing pads.

Take the case of the re­cent visit of Pres­i­dent Buhari to the United States, the Nige­rian del­e­gates were busy hav­ing a good pose so they will ap­pear well, ad­just­ing their faces to the cam­eras, while the Amer­i­cans were scrib­bling all the way.

Both past and present ad­min­is­tra­tions are guilty of this; it is ob­vi­ous that they (the Nige­rian del­e­gates) go with the pres­i­dent
