The 2023 presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, has called on President Bola Tinubu to publicly disclose all his trips as he is a national resource.

Obi argued that since Tinubu’s trips are funded by taxpayers, it is necessary for him to make them known to the public.

This request comes after the presidency announced that Tinubu was embarking on a private visit to France.

Obi emphasized that revealing his trips would contribute to reducing the expenses of running the government.

Posting n X, Obi wrote: “I have been wondering what is private for a sitting President who is not on vacation to embark on a publicly funded ‘private’ visit. May I humbly remind the President that he is now a public national asset.

“Therefore, all his movements now should be public knowledge and matters of public interest. Even when he needs a private visit like a holiday, family gathering, etc, he should state so, which is graciously allowed, but private visits, like the one he has embarked on now, should be done at his expense and not at public cost.

“That is part of the cost-cutting measures desperately needed by the nation now. We now require savings of sorts to deal with every little issue that requires attention, like the maintenance of small public assets.”
