Scan News Reported that General Muhammadu Buhari, The Nigerian president – elect paid a surprise visit to Number 10 Downing Street yesterday where he had an impromptu meeting with British Prime Minister David Cameron during which they agreed on military cooperation to fight Boko Haram.
The report further observed that Nigerian journalists are extremely lazy. Lazy and mischievous to a fault.
Noting that the President elect Mohammadu Buhari flew out of the country unannounced with shrouded motives and a respected old tabloid descended so low to tell us a cock and bull story about a chase by Mrs Allison Madueke to catch up with Buhari and initiate a conversation probably to beg him.
Till date no one has come up with a plausible reason or reasons why the President elect often abandons urgent projects for London visits.He did abandon his campaign schedule at critical moment to visit London and right now is in London five days to his swearing in as Head of Government when there is supposed to be Bee-hum preparations for an action government with false promises already recanted before inauguration.
I am on the grounds here and will keep everybody posted on the purpose of this visit.Don’t mind those Cameron/Buhari pixs.I hope to see him at Harley street tomorrow popping out from a privy hospital.
Addendum:There is nothing wrong in visiting a Hospital or being sick.We are all human but it is wrong and unpresidential to be deceitful about it and as a citizen we deserve to know.
On March 28, General Buhari was elected as Nigeria’s new president while on May 8, Mr Cameron was returned as British prime minister. General Buhari is due to be sworn-in on May 29 but in a surprise move he arrived in the UK yesterday for an unscheduled visit, which even his closest aides did not know about.
Yesterday, the two leaders met in London to discuss the challenges facing Nigeria, with priority given to tackling corruption, which they agreed was a priority needed addressing to ensure Nigeria’s prosperity and success. They also discussed the need to tackle organised crime and the links between the UK and Nigeria and the challenges posed by migration from Africa to Europe, with General Buhari promising to secure Nigeria’s borders
A Downing Street spokesperson said: “The leaders discussed security in the region and the fight against terrorism, particularly the threat posed by Boko Haram. They discussed the need for a regional approach and agreed to continue working together to build the capacity of the Nigerian Army, with the UK continuing to provide military training and intelligence support.
“Both leaders congratulated each other on their recent election victories and discussed the challenges facing Nigeria. The Prime Minister stressed the UK’s wish to work for a stable, prosperous and secure Nigeria.”
He added that Prime Minister Cameron agreed to look at what technical assistance and support the UK could provide to the Nigerian government as it looks to undertake its reforms. General Buhari is expected back in Nigeria this week ahead of Friday’s inauguration ceremony.
