President Buhari Says He Is A “Slow Reader,” Reason For Delay In Signing African Trade Deal Agreement

👤 By Danjuma Aliyu

President Muhammadu Buhari is expected to sign the African Continental Free Trade Area Agreement (AfCFTA) soon.

The reason why he has not signed it yet, he said is because he is a “slow reader.”

“I was presented with the document, I am a very slow reader maybe because I was an ex-soldier. I didn’t read it fast enough before my officials saw that it was all right for signature.

“I kept it on my table. I will soon sign it. I am very careful about what I sign whether it is my checkbook or agreements especially when it involves nation states,” he said during a visit by South African President Cyril Ramaphosa.
