@Politics Africa: Buhari’s invitation to White House shows corporation between Nigeria and USA –Lai Mohammed



The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, has said that the invitation of President Muhammadu Buhari to the White House by the U.S. President, Donald Trump was a proof of the cordial relationship between the two countries.

Mohammed made this known in New York during his engagements with media.
He said, “I think it would be presumptuous to really know or say what he (Trump) is going to discuss with Mr President (Buhari).
“But clearly, that he (Buhari) is being invited by President Trump shows the growing cooperation between the U.S. and Nigeria and I think it portends well for both countries.”
Trump is due to host Buhari on Monday, April 30, at the White House to discuss issues including “fighting terrorism” and economic growth.
“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,” the White House had said.
Buhari would be the first African leader that Trump would host at the White House since his inauguration on Jan. 20, 2017. Recall that the Nigerian president was the first African leader Trump called on phone following his inauguration as the U.S. president.
