Buhari's Re-election Shortest Route To Igbo Presidency- SGF

She adds that the United States has a "deep and strong" relationship with Nigeria.

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

Nigeria would be purchasing 12 high-technology attack planes and equipment worth $600 million from the United States to fight Boko Haram.

The group is behind the notorious kidnapping of more than 200 schoolgirls in Chibok.

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

Sylvester was quoted as saying that members of the group were happy with the achievements of the Buhari administration so far.


Recalling that Nigeria and Britain have a long history of cooperation on several fronts, President Buhari stated: "People ought to know how they arrived where they are, if they would move forward".

Former US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson had visited Nigeria back in Marchfollowing Trump's comment where he described African nations as "s-hole countries". However the trip was cut short and Tillerson fired. Majority of Nigerians are happy, but agents of corruption and darkness are unhappy.

He commended members of the Buhari Diaspora Support Organisation for deciding to identify with the country when they could have stayed overseas where they are comfortable.

In a statement by Femi Adesina, the special adviser to the president on media and publicity, President Buhari said while other politicians are focused on the 2019 elections, his focus is on the promises he made to Nigerians and achieving them.

Referring to them as "hyenas and jackals", she said in the interview she would find it hard to campaign for her husband in the 2019 election if he did not shake up his government.

"Nigerians elected this administration based on the trust and confidence they have on my husband", Aisha said in a statement Sunday.
