Poll: Is there any truth to what Buhari said about Nigeria’s image abroad?

Buhari is in the oven again, and this time, there’s a crate in the background, with an unconscious man in it.

But what exactly did he tell the Telegraph?

”Some Nigerians’ claim is that life is too difficult back home. But they have also made it difficult for Europeans and Americans to accept them because of the number of Nigerians in prisons around the world accused of drug trafficking or human trafficking.
