I Would Like To Visit Nigeria – Trump
Get ready, US President Donald Trump is thinking of coming to Naija!
Trump on Monday said he would like to visit Nigeria, describing it as an “amazing country.”
Trump spoke while receiving President Muhammadu Buhari at the State House.
“Well, I would like very much to visit Nigeria. It is an amazing country. In certain ways, I hear from the standpoint of the beauty of a country — there’s no country more beautiful,” he said.
Trump received Buhari in his first meeting with a leader from sub-Saharan Africa at the White House. The two leaders emphasised the need to improve trade, technology and human rights records.
Buhari acknowledged Trump’s mild gesture about Nigeria’s beauty, but did not immediately say whether he would invite him to Nigeria.
The warming remarks was made at the same time as when Trump decried Nigeria’s corruption, saying it was “massive.”
The last sitting American president to visit Nigeria was George Bush, who came in 2003 for discussions with former President Olusegun Obasanjo.
