CNN Turns President Buhari Long Absence to Quiz Question


Ailing President Muhammadu Buhari medical leave in London.

He has spent more than two months outside the country.

Cable News Network (CNN) may have just made a mockery of Nigeria over the continued absence of President Muhammadu Buhari from the country.

The television medium mocked the country in the latest edition of its “The Global Public Square (GPS)”, a foreign affairs show anchored by Fareed Zakaria.

The programme in its Quiz and Trivia segment asked, “The head of state from which country has not set foot in his homeland in over two months?”

The options were given as Saudi Arabia, Cuba, Nigeria and Syria.

It went on to tick the option ‘Nigeria’.

Chidi Odinkalu, Former Chairman of the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) posted a screenshot of the question on Twitter.

Buhari had left Nigeria since May 7 for medical examination and treatment.

The Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo and some governors have visited him in London and maintained that he is fast recovering.
