Kenya’s William Ruto and Nigeria’s Bola Tinubu have been criticized for their frequent trips abroad since becoming presidents.

Ruto has been dubbed the “Flying President” due to his extensive travel despite pressing domestic issues, while Tinubu has faced scrutiny for his overseas trips amidst Nigeria’s security challenges.

While some argue that international travel is necessary for diplomatic and economic reasons, critics question the frequency and cost of these trips.

Both leaders defend their travels as essential for attracting investment and addressing domestic issues.

However, concerns over excessive spending on travel have led to calls for greater scrutiny and accountability.

Similar criticisms have been leveled at leaders in other African countries, highlighting a broader concern over government spending on international travel.
