The presidency has justified President Muhammadu Buhari’s decision to go on a trip to Dakar, Senegal, despite the recent terror attack in the country.
The president will be heading to Dakar on Wednesday to attend the IDA for Africa Summit.
Reacting to the trip Nigerians condemned such a move when the country is still reeling the after effect of the attack on Kuje prison and the attack on the president’s convoy.
However, responding to a question on the President’s planned trip, despite the security situation, Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, said Buhari had done well by not pandering to threats by terrorists.
According to him, “Yes, the President should go! , the Spokesman said on Wednesday.
Because there’s an international conference meant for heads of states and presidents, he should attend. You should never give in to terrorists. The moment terrorists begin to stop you from doing things, then we might as well throw up our hands in surrender. The President should go ahead. Yes, it’s an international obligation.”
