I am a Nigerian but I do not understand Mr. Buhari's accent. I doubt that Mr. Trump understood him. He did not.

@ Jon Colinas - Exactly my thoughts - perhaps they had an interpreter.

Trump can call, but the presidency can give the phone to a person that can talk very well with Trump, and i know Buhari can not hear what Trump will say.

Sometimes, the sacasm of Nigerians can become abusive. Trump has not complained that he does not understand Buhari yet we are tearing him into shreads. Find an interpreter if you don't understand him. Chikena.The most fluent heads of government in Nigeria were the most destructive. List them.

Mr Eleko no one is tearing him into shreds. We are just being realistic. Most Nigerians dont understand his accent let alone an American. Someone has explained that someone can interpret(is that the right word?) for him. It doesn't mean he can't speak good English.(Obviously he can). So Mr man, chill!!!
