Buhari, French President, Macron, Hold Talks Today

President Muhammadu Buhari, who returned to Abuja last night from AU Summit in Mauritania, is billed to hold bilateral talks with President Emmanuel Macron of France at Presidential Villa, Abuja, today at 4.00p.m.

NAN reports that the French leader would discuss issues bordering on security and terrorism with Mr Buhari.

Mr Macron had on Monday in Nouakchott during the closing ceremony of the AU Summit met with the Nigerian leader.

He will after his engagement with Mr Buhari, visit the Afrika Shrine, a nightclub in Lagos founded by Nigerian music legend Fela Anikulapo Kuti.

Social commentators believed that Mr Macron would become the first “real president” to enter the club synonymous with marijuana smoke, sexy backup dancers and protest music.

And he is not a stranger to Nigeria. He trained as a senior civil servant at the French Embassy in Lagos in 2004, seven years after Fela died.

Mr Buhari on Monday night, returned to Abuja after attending the 31st Ordinary Session of the African Union (AU) Assembly of Heads of State and Government, in Nouakchott.

The minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Muhammed Bello, Chief of Staff to the President, Abba Kyari and some government functionaries welcomed the president at the presidential wing of the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja. NAN
