Abuja - President Muhammadu Buhari will meet U.S. President Donald Trump in Washington on April 30 to discuss issues on the fight against terrorism and economic ties between Nigeria and the United States, the White House announced yesterday.
He said: "The meeting agreed with the President and concurred that more consultation is the way to go because the African Continental Free Trade Area Agreement will have implications for us, which we hope will be positive".
He commended British companies like Unilever, Cadbury, and many others, "who have stood with Nigeria through thick and thin".
"I am very pleased with the successes in agriculture", he said, adding: "We have cut rice importation by about 90%, made lots of savings of foreign exchange, and generated employment". People had rushed to the cities to get oil money, at the expense of farming. The party, in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, yesterday, also said, "President Buhari should not forget to inform CHOGM that back home, there is a national indignation and general vote of no confidence against his administration for its abysmal performance and failure to fulfill the littlest in the long list of bogus promises they made during the 2015 Presidential campaign".
The President acknowledged that it was a mistake for Nigeria to have stopped the teaching of history as a subject in schools and promised that the Federal Government would return it to the curriculum.

"We are making steady progress on the road to food security". "We need well-staffed and well-equipped institutions to move into the next generation".
At the end of the meeting, President Buhari thanked Prime Minister May for Britain's efforts at the training of the Nigerian Armed forces in fighting Boko Haram.
