When President Donald Trump receives Nigerian leader, Muhammadu Buhari, on Monday, April 30, 2018, it would be the second time he had received an African leader at the White House since he assumed office more than a year ago.

Mr. Trump first hosted Egyptian President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi at the White House on April 3.

But Mr. Buhari would be the first Sub-Saharan African leader to be received by Mr. Trump.  Both leaders are expected to discuss bilateral trade ties as well as security and the fight against corruption.

They will take questions from reporters in the Rose Garden at the White House between 1.30 p.m. and 2.30 p.m., the White House said.

Today News Africa’s Simon Ateba would be attending the press availability event and would ask questions to Mr. Trump and Mr. Buhari.
