Trump Invites Buhari To White House On April 30

The White House said in an announcement on Sunday, April 15, that President Donald Trump will discuss issues related to the promotion of economic growth and fighting terrorism with his Nigerian counterpart during the meeting.

The president stated this in London while receiving the Buhari Diaspora Support Organization, led by Charles Efe Sylvester.

"If in the course of investigations, it (Presidency) discovered that the insurgents were from outside Nigeria, why is the government reportedly paying ransoms to them and even considering amnesty options?"

A statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity Femi Adesina said the failure of some past administrations put the country where it is today.

He said past leaders failed to exploit, to the advantage of Nigerians, the myriad natural and human resources available to them.

"I wonder how all those things could have happened to our country". He lauded the BDSO members for identifying with the country when they could have remained indifferent to happening in their home country, in their comfort zone overseas.

Similarly, the Coalition for Nigeria Movement (CNM), said Buhari should also blame himself for the nations woes being a past leader of Nigeria.

The coordinator of the group said members were happy with the achievements of the Buhari administration so far, noting that "you met a hard situation, but you overcome a lot of them".

He noted that that President has overcome most of the challenges he met, especially in the areas of agriculture revolution, ease of doing business, anti-corruption war, employment of youths through the N-Power programme, and the blockage of leakages in the public sector through the Treasury Single Account (TSA), among others.

His opponents argue that he has not fulfilled his campaign promises to tackle corruption and insecurity in northeast Nigeria. You are a General who does not fear combat, either with Generals or non-Generals.

With just 306 days to the presidential poll, the President Buhari's spokesman was confident that his principal would be re-elected six days after he declared his intention to contest the election.

"Rather than offering explanations, the Buhari Presidency, in the All Progressives Congress (APC)'s usual arrogance and disdain, opted to insult Nigerians, including federal legislators as well the institution of the National Assembly".
