Buhari-2015

President Obama will welcome the recently elected president of Nigeria to the White House on July 20, lending U.S. support to that nation’s first-ever transition to democracy.

Obama and President Muhammadu Buhari will discuss “our many shared priorities including US.-Nigeria cooperation to advance a holistic, regional approach to combating Boko Haram, as well as Nigeria’s efforts to advance important economic and political reforms,” the White House said in a statement.

The visit underscores the long-standing U.S.-Nigerian friendship, the White House said, including the American “commitment to strengthening and expanding our partnership with Nigeria’s new government, and our support for the Nigerian people following their historic democratic elections and peaceful transfer of power.”
