“Many world leaders are saying now that Nigeria has a leader with integrity, they have the confidence to discuss with us even on the issue of the looted funds, so sending a representative cannot achieve that much,” he said.

Buhari has been criticized for his frequent trips abroad with many urging him to remain in Nigeria and solve the country’s problems.
