- President Muhammadu Buhari has been said to be the reason Nigeria is now being respected by the international community
- Dr Orji Uzor Kalu made this assertion in Lagos while speaking with journalists
- He said that the world powers have confidence in what President Buhari is doing for the country
A former governor of Abia, Dr Orji Uzor Kalu, on Wednesday, May 9, said that Nigeria was now being respected by the international community due to the integrity of President Muhammadu Buhari and his efforts to re-position the country.
Kalu, who made the assertion while speaking with newsmen in Lagos, described Buhari’s recent visit to the United States of America as a success.
He noted that Buhari was invited to the US by President Donald Trump only few weeks after the Nigerian leader met with the British prime minister, Theresa May, NAN reports.
NAIJ.com notes that Kalu said: "It is only showing the position and confidence the world powers are reposing on Buhari and that shows that the door is open.
“Some other presidents needed state visits to the US but they didn’t get it. A matter of less than three years, Buhari is being given red carpet in the White House. So, we are very proud that our image is changing and everybody is respecting Nigeria. The world powers have confidence in what he is doing for us."
The APC chieftain also noted that the Buhari-led government was working assiduously toward stabilising the economy and ensuring that Nigerians were feeling positive impact of its programmes and policies.
The ex-governor advised Nigerian youths to continue to put in the hard work needed to develop the country to the desired level.
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com previously reported that the ex-governor of Abia state, Orji Uzor Kalu, said that Nigeria's challenges were the scathing criticisms of President Muhammadu Buhari's administration by people that were reckless and lawless when they were in power.
Kalu said that in spite of the vitriolic attacks against the president, he deserved a second term in office to complete his good projects for Nigeria.
