Buhari heads to Washington DC for Monday meeting with Trump

Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari would this Saturday, head to Washington DC, United States of America for a planned meeting with President, Donald Trump on Monday, April 30, this year, reports ITRealms.

This, ITRealms gathered from Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed that President Buhari on this visit would mark the first African president to meet US President Donald J. Trump at the White House in Washington, since emerging President in 2016.

Also commenting on this, the director of the Atlantic Council’s Africa Center, J. Peter Pham, expressed optimism the visit by Buhari is coming with good omen.

“I think it sends a very good signal that the first African head of state to have an Oval Office meeting will be the democratically elected president of Africa’s most populous country and its largest economy,” Peter Pham said.


ITRealms further gathered that the two leaders are expected to focus on security and economic issues.

On security, Nigeria has been battling the Boko Haram insurgency in the northeast of the country for almost a decade. The group was behind the kidnapping of more than 200 schoolgirls in Chibok in 2014 as well as the 
abduction of more than 100 from Dapchi in February 2018.
