President Buhari has had quite a rollercoaster week. From starting out pretty great with the news of the release of the girls to being a public ridicule to the world over domestic ‘banter’.
Here are the events that took place this past week by the President.
President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday handed over two air crafts of the presidential air fleet to the Nigerian Air Force (NAF).

Then, Buhari at the opening ceremony of the 22nd Nigeria Economic Summit Group (NESG) in Abuja, said the time has come for Nigeria to diversify its economy and break away from its over-dependence on oil.
Later on, President Muhammadu Buhari held a closed-door meeting with former President Olusegun Obasanjo at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
He ended the day celebrating as he described the Super Eagles victory over Zambia in the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier match at the weekend as “cheery and soul-lifting.”
President Muhammadu Buhari nominated Sidi Bage and Paul Jauro, as Supreme Court justices.
President Muhammadu Buhari announced a proposed talks with German Chancellor Angela Merkel during an official visit to the European country.
He then presided over the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting. The weekly FEC meeting held inside the Presidential Villa, Aso Rock and had in attendance Vice President Professor Yemi Osinbajo, ministers of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and members of the President’s kitchen cabinet.
President Muhammadu Buhari said he was disheartened by the news of a bomb blast in a motor park in Maiduguri, capital of Borno State. He said the incident which claimed the lives of 8 persons was a cowardly attack on “soft targets” by Boko Haram.
Buhari then approved the nomination of the Minister of Environment, Amina Mohammed as a member of the African Union Reform Steering Committee.
The day started with good news as President Muhammadu Buhari welcomed the release of 21 Chibok girls from terrorist sect, Boko Haram.
President Muhammadu Buhari was all smiles as he headed to Germany to meet with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, so much that he expressed optimism on the release of more of the kidnapped Chibok girls, after 21 of them were freed by Boko Haram, following more than two years of captivity.
President Muhammadu Buhari paid a visit to the Acting General Officer Commanding (GOC) 3rd Armoured Division Jos, Brigadier General MSA Aliyu currently recuperating in German hospital after an accident.
He later on went on a rant saying that oil importers colluded with banks over the years to defraud the government.
Following a statement where President Muhammadu Buhari stated that his wife belongs to his kitchen and living room generated a lot of dust, the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Force attempted to defend the statement.
