Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday met behind closed with the visiting Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni, in the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The Ugandan President was received on arrival by President Buhari at the Aso Rock villa, Abuja, at about 2.25p.m.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the Uganda’s president is on a “friendly visit’’ to Nigeria.

NAN reports that the Ugandan president has been showing interest and concern over the activities of the deadly Boko Haram sect operating in Nigeria over five years ago.

Mr. Museveni was quoted in 2014, during the administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan, as warning the Nigerian government against negotiating with the Boko Haram insurgents.

“It would be a mistake for the government of Nigeria to negotiate with these people.”

“The most important thing is to defeat them, then negotiations can come after that,’’ Museveni told a local Ugandan newspaper in an interview in May 2014.

    Mr Museveni….Do not believe this clown called Buhari, He is the guy sponsoring the Boko Haram. You are fighting a just war against the Lord’s Army. The Lord’s Army is headed by a crazy man, Kony. Buhari has used the Boko Haram against the former Christian president. I know that as a veteran of African politics, you understand what I mean. I believe in a united Africa, minus the Moslems who are Arabs. In fact the more I look at the Moslems and the problems they bring us Africans, I advocate an Africa devoid of them completely, But God has thrust us together. Look at what they did in Somalia, they entered Kenya, Kenya gave them a place and they are there bombing the people who accomodated them. Wow…They are causing problems everywhere. Look at the bombings in the United embassy in Nairobi and elsewhere…Yoweri don’t trust this man. Another Moslem, maybe not this guy.

    Museveni would know; he was a guerilla leader for many years before he came to power many decades ago, and he is today still hanging on to power to the detriment of democratic growth in Uganda!

    Methinks the real reason for Museveni’s visit to Nigeria is to give advice to Buhari on how to hang on to power; given the latter’s lack lustre performance as a democratic President! Museveni, just like Mugabe is a veteran at manipulating the electoral process of his country! Buhari really needs the tips!
