A former senator who represented the Kogi West senatorial district during National Assembly, Dino Melaye has mocked President Muhammadu Buhari for representing Nigeria at the Global Education Summit in the United Kingdom.
KanyiDaily had earlier reported that President Buhari is currently in London to participate in the Global Education Summit on Financing Global Partnership for Education (GPE) 2021-2025.
The president will remain in London for two weeks to enable him see his doctors for an earlier scheduled medical check-up as disclosed by his media aide, Femi Adesina.
Reacting in a video shared on his Twitter page, Melaye questioned the capacity of Buhari to represent Nigerians in a global education summit that was attended by intellectual mobile characters.
He said Buhari should have asked the Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo to represent the country instead of going there to just be an observer.
Dino Melaye Slams Buhari Over Global Education Summit
“It is very funny that President Muhammadu Buhari has gone to London to attend the Global Education Summit,” Dino Melaye said.
“It is funny and it is outing Nigeria in a very bad shape because I’m wondering what will president Buhari be discussing in a global education summit.
“This is the man that has just secondary school certificate, a school sat failure and unfortunately, that certificate is even missing. We have not seen it, no copy of it.
“And you are going to a global education summit where you have professors emeritus. Where you have intellectual mobile characters. And Buhari is going to sit down and discuss what?
“I was even thinking that he would send someone like the Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo to go and interact. Except the president is going to be deaf and dumb in the summit.
“Except he is he is going there to be an observer, I’m imagining what President Buhari is going there to discuss.
“It is a shame that Nigeria is not represented in this global summit because we have a president who has nothing to offer, who is intellectually stagnant, who has no capacity academically.
“Present Buhari should have told us that he is going for medical not Global education summit”.
KanyiDaily recalls that Dino Melaye had also opined that any Nigerian who survives the eight-year tenure of President Buhari should be issued a certificate for survival.
