President Buhari jets off to France, London

7-Buhari attend AU summit 13June2015 8C. AQ4V6233

President Muhammadu Buhari will begin an official visit to France and Britain on Tuesday, February 2.

At his first stop in Strasbourg, France, President Buhari will on Wednesday, February 3, address a special session of the European Union Parliament to be attended by members of the executive and legislative arms of the Union, presidential spokesperson, Femi Adesina, said in a statement Monday.

The President’s address, according to Mr. Adesina, is expected to focus on terrorism, violent extremism, corruption, Nigeria and Africa’s current security, economic and developmental challenges, as well as the need for greater support from the European Union and advanced nations for their rapid resolution.

President Buhari will also hold talks with the President of the European Parliament, Martin Schulz and the President of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker on the same issues before leaving Strasbourg for London to join other world leaders at the Supporting Syria and The Region Conference scheduled to open in the British capital on Thursday, February 4, 2016.

Mr. Adesina said the President would use the opportunity of his participation in the conference, being co-hosted by Britain, Germany, Norway, Kuwait and the United Nations, to continue his push for more global understanding, collaboration and support for Nigeria and other countries in the frontlines of the war against terrorism who are striving to overcome its very adverse effects on affected populations.

He is due back in Nigeria at the weekend.

    I WEPT WHEN I HEARD THAT NIGERIA IS GOING CAP IN TO THE WORLD BANK AND THE INTERNATION FINIANCE COMMUNITY TO GET A LOAN OF 3.4 BILLION USA DOLLARS, WHEN GOODLUCK JONATHAN, DEZIANI, NGOZI, NNPC AND THEIR AGENTS CAN NOT ACCOUNT FOR OR RATHER STOLE FROM OUR TREASURY THE SUM OF 20 BILLION DOLLARS. THIS FIGURE IS NOT MINE, BUT THAT OF THE FORMER GOVERNOR OF THE CENTRAL BANK OF NIGERIA SANUSI. YET SOME NIGERIANS ARE QUEING TO GLORIFY GOODLUCK JONATHAN AT ANY AVAILABLE OPPORTUNITY. THESE VERY SHAMELESS, CHARLATANS AND PRAISE SINGERS OF GOODLUCK JONATHAN, MUST HIDE THEIR FACES IN PERMANENT SHAME. ALL WELL MEANING AND PATIOTIIC NIGERIANS MUST NOT ONLY ENCOURAGE PRESIDENT BUHARI AND ASSIST PRESIDENT BUHARI TO MAKE SURE THAT THESE THIEVES AND LOOTERS ARE MADE TO RETURN ALL STOLEN AND LOOTED MONEY. ANY MEASURE USED BY PRESIDENT BUHARI MUST BE SUPPORTED BY ALL WELL MEANING NIGERIANS. ANY THING SHORT OF THIS IS NOT AN OPTION AND VERY UNACCEPTABLE

    • share Idea

      The president travelled to Kenya and Ethiopia last week while his backyard (NE) was boiling and on returning he decided to attend Ogun state party without saying any soothing words about the BH mayhem nor deem it fit to visit that part of the country and thereafter, he is now embarking on another wasteful voyage.

      When France was attacked the other time, France PM stayed back in the country without joining the G8 summit then. Food for thougth

  • cmanx

    Buhari be assured that IPOB we receive you well

  • Maria Darego

    The President is just going for his medical checkup with his Doctors in London! The France stopover is a diversion and the real destination is London for his medical checkup! The Syria conference in London does not concern Nigeria!

    • The facts

      I wonder! The Syria conference is to raise funds for Syrian refugees so I don’t know how that one concerns Nigeria because the last time I checked Nigeria was applying for loan from World Bank.

  • Say the truth

    That is why the old man cried when he lost previous elections. He even threatened to soak the streets with the blood of dogs and baboons. He got his wish now. Our president in diaspora is off again. Enjoy your stay there. After all the bogus budget for Aso villa clinic, Mr President will still spend tax payers money to consult doctors in London. GODDEY.
