President Donald Trump has welcomed the first African leader to visit the White House during his presidency, Nigeria's Muhammadu Buhari (moo-HAH'-mah-doo boo-HAH'-ree).

The meeting was confirmed by Buhsri's Personal Assistant on New Media, Ahmad Bashir, via his Twitter handle.

A chieftain of the party in Bauchi State who was a former Minister of Police Affairs during the Olusegun Obasanjo led PDP administration, Dr Yakubu Lame while fielding questions from newsmen declared that he was not aware of any meeting where the issue of replacing President Muhammadu Buhari as the APC candidate was ever on the agenda of a meeting he attended.

The meeting will further deepen the U.S. -Nigeria relationship as the United States considers Nigeria's economic growth, security and leadership in Africa to be critical aspects of their strategic partnership.

U.S. officials had previously downplayed the chances of holding the meeting at the DMZ, since it may appear Trump is traveling to Kim's doorstep.

President Donald Trump is urging Nigeria to take down trade barriers to allow additional US investment in the African nation.

Trump however didn't deny making the comment, and as Buharu chuckled, said "you do have some countries that are in very bad shape, and very tough places to live in".

In excising the program, however, the administration offered no real explanation - other than to say that it was illegal. The number of DACA recipients totaled 693,850 nationally and 31,880 in NY at the end of March, according to USCIS .

Trump says the USA will invest "substantially" in Nigeria if Buhari can create a level playing field.

Buhari said the US and Nigerian delegations discussed security, trade, government and human rights, among other topics.

The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) had staged a nationwide protest against the killings on Sunday. He said this was to allow the country effectively combat terrorism and safeguard human lives.

The President also thanked the United States for its support in the fight against Boko Haram insurgency and its efforts in trying to get rid of terrorism across the world. 43 years of Ghaddaffi, people were recruited from Sahel and trained to shoot and kill.

In his welcome speech, Trump expressed appreciation for the visit.
