Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama, told Sun that the notion making the rounds that the president no longer enjoys the support of the international community was fake news.

He said contrary to the belief, other countries are very keen to maintain and indeed, strengthen bilateral relationship with President Buhari as Nigeria’s leader.

According to him, “Not at all! Not at all! On the contrary, he has got a lot of outstanding invitations to visit a number of countries and they are all very keen to maintain and indeed, strengthen bilateral relationship with him at the helm of affairs of the country.

“So, far from it! I think on the contrary, they are still very much engaged with the country going forward.

“It is a weapon of the opposition clearly and also, a fake news. You have to hate somebody with whatever you can. So, they are clutching at straws.

“There was one that he was in Paris, but they said he wasn’t really there, that he wasn’t at the major events in Paris.

“But he went to Paris for one specific event and that was Peace Conference and he was one of the leaders who were given an opportunity to address an audience.

“So, he is very present and getting lots more of invitations and major countries are engaging with him. It is just political attacks, opportunism.”
