Garba Shehu Rubbishes Moghalu, Calls Him ‘Ignorant’, ‘Petty Politician’
Says "Makes Ignorance Fashionable"
Mallam Garba Shehu, the Senior Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari has rubbed dirt on the face of the candidate of the Young Progressives Party [YPP] in the 2019 presidential election and former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria [CBN], Prof. Kingsley Moghalu, saying that he “makes ignorance fashionable”.
Mallam Shehu was reacting to Prof. Moghalu’s comment on the non-invitation of President Buhari to witness the G7 meeting.
Shehu said: “Kingsley Moghalu is either ignorant or playing petty politics. The non-invitation of President Buhari to witness the G7 meeting this year is not a snub.
“Neither does it diminish the status of Nigeria as the biggest economy on the continent.
“It seems no one clarified to the one-time Presidential Candidate how the G7 secretariat works.
“If they invite a country with an economy the size of Niger State, not Kano’s, not even Lagos’s does it call for Dr. Moghalu’s lamentation?
“Today, as we see it, they call this country, tomorrow they decide to have another. It’s entirely up to them.
“Buhari didn’t go to Europe. Europe came to him in Japan where the EU had him sign an MOU for 50 Million Euro in support to the country’s devastated North East.
“The joke is not on President Buhari. The joke is on Moghalu for attempting to make ignorance fashionable.”
