After the Financial Times reported on Monday, that the US President Donald Trump described his meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari as ‘lifeless’. The Federal Government through the Minister of Information and Culture Lai Muhammed has reacted to the report.
“But if truly he said so, then it is of no significance to us. This is because the same Trump publicly endorsed and applauded the President for a job well done.” Lai Muhammed said.
Financial Times reported that Trump made the statement after the meeting the two leaders had on April 30th.
According to the Financial Times, the meeting ended with Trump saying he never wanted to meet someone as lifeless as President Buhari again.
Alhaji Lai Mohammed said that if Trump made such statement, it would be insignificant since he (Trump) had earlier publicly endorsed President Buhari.
