Buhari Meets Prime Minister Of UK, David Cameron

President Muhammadu Buhari of Nigeria has met with Prime Minister of the United Kingdom David Cameron during the 70th General Assembly of the United Nations in New York.

Buhari departed Abuja, Nigeria’s capital for the meeting on September 24, Thursday.

He holds meeting with the world leaders on domestic developmental issues, bilateral relations, the war against terrorism, countering violent extremism, and the enhancement of global security, peace-keeping operations, climate change and the adoption of a post 2015 global development agenda.

Meanwhile, it is expected that Nigerian president will round off his visit to New York on Tuesday, September 29 and return to Abuja on the same day.

Buhari discussed a range of issues with Cameron, when he was on a private visit to Britain, on May 23, his first such trip outside the country since winning the presidential poll.

Nigerian president recently visited France to hold talks on Boko Haram insurgency with Francois Holland, causing the rumours that Buhari ignores Britain in his foreign trips.

Nigeria gained independence from the United Kingdom as a Commonwealth Realm on 1 October 1960.
