The United States Secretary of State, Antony Blinken, is expected to hold a virtual meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari today, Tuesday.
According to a press statement issued yesterday by Blinken’s spokesman, Ned Price, the U.S. top official will embark on the virtual travel to Africa to speak with President Buhari and the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama.
Part of the statement reads: “During his visit, Secretary Blinken will meet with President Buhari and Foreign Minister Onyeama to reiterate the value of our bilateral relationship and discuss issues of shared importance”.
The meeting is slated to take place after the American government issued a third-level alert, warning its citizens to reconsider travelling to Nigeria.
Recall that in March, Secretary Blinken held talks with Minister Onyeama, highlighting the importance of the United States and Nigeria’s bi-lateral relations.
