NIGERIA’S BUHARI RETURNS HOME EMPTY HANDED FROM U.S. 

School fees Ijaw leader, amnesty beneficiaries plead for Buhari’s assistance

Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari returned home from a Washington visit with no agreement from the United States to sell weapons.

The newly-inaugurated Buhari spent four days in the United States, seeking weapons to help defeat the insurgent militant group Boko Haram, but although he was greeted warmly by President Barack Obama , was rebuffed on weapons sales. The United States believes such sales would contravene the Leahy Law, a U.S. human rights law prohibiting the U.S. Department of State and Department of Defense from providing military assistance to foreign countries which violate human rights. He returned to Abuja, Nigeria’s capital, without assurances of U.S.military aid.
