Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari has given ammunition to critics who call him “Baba Go-slow” after admitting that he failed to sign a continental free-trade agreement because he is a “slow reader”.

Mr Buhari said he intends to sign the agreement, reached by African leaders at a summit in Rwanda in March, soon.  Mr Buhari was speaking at a news conference during a visit to Nigeria by South Africa’s President Cyril Ramaphosa.

Mr Ramaphosa had earlier told Nigerian business leaders that South Africa saw huge benefits from the continental free trade deal and that a draft agreement relating to the movement of people was being reviewed.
