Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari is to meet U.S. President Donald
Trump at the White House on April 30, the White House said on Sunday. 

The
meeting comes weeks after Rex Tillerson, then U.S. secretary of state,
visited Nigeria and other African countries in March only to be fired
after his return to Washington.

Tillerson’s trip was part of
attempts to smooth relations after Trump reportedly dismissed some
African nations as “shithole countries” in January. Trump later denied
making the comment. 
“President
Trump looks forward to discussing ways to enhance our strategic
partnership and advance our shared priorities,” White House spokeswoman
Sarah Sanders said in a statement. 
The priorities include
“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”, she said.

Buhari,
a 75-year-old former military ruler who took office in 2015, last week
announced that he will seek a second term in elections next year.

flew to Britain for talks with Prime Minister Theresa May shortly after
the announcement. (Reuters)
