America’s strongman, Donald Trump, wants to host Nigeria’s President, Muhammadu Buhari; and has invited to come visiting on the 30th of April.

The White House announced on Sunday that Trump will discuss issues such as promoting economic growth and fighting terrorism with Buhari.

“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.

Recall that 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.

But the planes and equipment are still been awaited as the Defence Headquarters has not publicly acknowledged receipt.

The scheduled meeting will be the second between the two leaders after a last September meeting on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly, during a luncheon Trump held for a select group of African leaders.
