TRUMP

United States president Donald Trump will host President Muhammadu Buhari at the White House on April 30, the White House announced on Sunday.

Trump will discuss issues such as promoting economic growth and fighting terrorism with Buhari, the White House said in a statement.

“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,” the statement said.

The State Department under Trump approved the sale of 12 high-technology attack planes and equipment worth $600 million to Nigeria last year after the Obama administration halted the sale because of accusations that Nigeria’s air force was bombing civilians.
