Buhari Receives German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Abuja

President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday received the vising German Chancellor, Angela Merkel, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Merkel, who is concluding her tour of three West African countries, arrived Aso Rock before noon where she was welcomed at the fore court of the Presidential Villa.

President Buhari, who earlier in the week met with the British Prime Minister Theresa May, introduced some members of his cabinet and presidential aides to Merkel before going into closed door meeting to deliberate on issues of mutual interest to both Nigeria and Germany.

Merkel is on her final leg of a three-day trip to Senegal, Ghana and Nigeria with a focus on strengthening economic development and containing illegal migration that’s seen her come under fire from right-wing elements back home.
