POLITICS: Buhari Excited on His Way to France for 3 Days Gigantic Visit

President Muhammadu Buhari will leave Abuja for Paris on Monday to begin a three-day official visit to France. The presidential visit was at the instance of President Francois Hollande of France, during which they will discuss security and economic issues, among other things. The President Buhari will be accompanied on the visit by the National Security Adviser, Maj.Gen. Babagana Monguno (retd.); the Permanent Secretaries in the Federal Ministries of Defence, Finance, Agriculture, Foreign Affairs, Industry, Trade and Investment as well as the Chief Executives of the Nigerian Investment Promotion Commission and the Nigerian Export Promotion Council.
A statement by the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to the President, Femi Adesina, on Sunday stated that Buhari’s talks with Hollande and other senior French government officials will focus on the further strengthening and consolidation of ongoing bilateral cooperation between Nigeria and France in the areas of defence, security, trade and investments.
Apart from his scheduled meeting with the French President at the Elysee Palace on Monday evening, Buhari and his team would also confer with the French Minister of Defence, Mr. Jean-Yves Le Drian; the French Minister of Finance and Public Accounts, Mr. Michel Sapin; the French Minister of Economy and Industry, Mr. Emmanuel Macron; and the French Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Development, Mr. Laurent Fabius.
“The President will visit the headquarters of MEDEF, France’s largest federation of investors and employers, where he will participate in a France/Nigeria investment forum with leading Nigerian and French entrepreneurs,” the statement added.
It said that Buhari would also confer with the chief executive officers of leading French multinational companies, such as Total and Lafarge, on their current and future investments in Nigeria.
The President’s other scheduled engagements in Paris include a meeting with African ambassadors to France and an interactive session with members of the Nigerian community.
He will conclude his visit to France on Wednesday and return to Abuja the same day.

@jesse: you just said my mind: i remember when i was in primary school. There was a particular song that RADIO RIVERS PORTHARCOURT kept playing all the time. It goes this way """ NEO-COLONIALISM IS THE PROBLEM IN AFRICA,"". Though, i couldn't figure out the meaning of the song but i enjoyed listening to it. Now that i'm an adult i don't think such song can be enjoyable to me. this neo-colonialism TAG should be completely wiped out in Africa

Jesse Osayande Vucinic Ehiagwina

Endy, you know one of the problems with that? We ourselves. Africans aren't patient. I don't think they even wana get out of it. The West have successfully imbibed the culture of individualist over collectivism in most. Very few know the African history and how the continent have been raped. Take Burkina Faso for example, Campaore in collabo with France+others had Sankara killed cos the Nation was progressing. What have the people don since then? NOTHING. Campaore still rules. Too many African leaders selling out and the citizens towing the path.

I see nothing wrong in our president travelling to different countries for our dear country. Travelling is part of leadership if many fail to know.

@mazi: I know it’s for bilateral betterment. But at times, the outcomes of the journeys are not made known to the masses which makes it a SELF-INTEREST Journey. @jesse: I think some of the colonial countries are aware of the evil deeds they carried out in Africa, I heard in the news over the weekend that Britain has tendered apology to Kenya for killing thousands of people in Kenya during Mau Mau uprising in Pre-colonial era. The apology came after over 50 years.

Endy, oh these countries know alright but our people have forgotten. What reparations have been given back? The Jews still collect "holocaust" money for what was questionable. Colonialism and slavery was far worse and it was REAL. No apologies, no reparations, no price paid. We don't know our history. Or we choose to forget them thinking its best left that way. That's a mistake. A big one. South Africans celebrate Mandela forgetting Steven Biko's fight. A man who didn't conform.

Jesse Osayande Vucinic Ehiagwina

The atrocities Belgium committed in Congo still lives on. African people still watch on with the continued rape cos they've stupidly let themselves been pitted against each other in the name of "tribe"

Nwigwe Chinweikpe

These white men understands that Buhari is nt Educated so they keepon inviting him to make fool of him and make mockry his country.

Jesse Osayande Vucinic Ehiagwina

Nwigwe, that your comment is such a downer.
