Buhari spent N5.2b on foreign trips

13 April 2016, 17:50

Abuja - President Muhammadu Buhari has spent about N5.2 billion on foreign trips since he assumed office 11 months ago.

Buhari, who is presently on a state visit to China, has made a total of 26 of such trips since May 29, 2015 when he took the oath of office.

By the time Buhari returns over the weekend, he would have spent 50 days outside Nigeria.

Sources within the Federal Ministry of Finance said each of the state visits cost Nigeria a minimum of N200 million, bringing it to a total of about N5.2 billion of tax payers’ money.

The amount excludes what state governors and ministers who are always part of the president’s entourage draw from their respective state governments’ and ministries’ accounts in the name of estacode and other allowances
