The U.S. President, Donald Trump will meet with his Nigerian counterpart in Washington on April 30 to discuss issues such as “fighting terrorism and other threats to peace and security.”
President Trump and President Muhammadu Buhari will also talk about “Nigeria’s economic growth.”
In a statement released ahead of the meeting, the White house said: “President Trump looks forward to discussing ways to enhance our strategic partnership and advance our shared priorities:
“Promoting economic growth and reforms, fighting terrorism and other threats to peace and security, and building on Nigeria’s role as a democratic leader in the region.
“The relationship of the United States with Nigeria is deep and strong, and Nigeria’s economic growth, security, and leadership in Africa will advance our mutual prosperity.”
President Buhari, who is currently in London will hold talks with Theresa May, the British Prime Minister today. He is expected to address Commonwealth leaders later this week.
Nigeria’s Commander in Chief declared his intention to seek a second term in office before leaving Nigeria last week.
But a poor performance in his first term has seen President Buhari, 75, lose a lot of goodwill that helped bring him into power and remove an incumbent from office – the first in Nigeria’s history.
In 2015, President Buhari promised to fight terrorist from the front and vowed to kill corruption.
Unfortunately, more people have been killed by herdsmen and the President has been slow to address the issue.
DENISAURUS News has reported exclusively on the corrupt act of President Buhari’s anti-corruption tsar, who remains in office despite an indicting report from the secret police.
Ibrahim Mustafa Magu, a perennial offender was rejected twice as the chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.
Staff of the Commission have constantly revealed to this paper, the corrupt act of their boss.
All of their allegations were later confirmed in the report written by the Department of State Security Services to the National Assembly.
