Nigerians who have been waiting for a concrete proof that their president was alive and well may have it in the next two hours when United States President Donald Trump speaks with President Muhammadu Buhari on the phone.
The phone call will take place at 3.45 pm Nigerian time.
“President Muhammadu Buhari will speak to United States President, Donald Trump today at 3:45 pm (Nigerian Time) from his London residence,” the Presidency in Nigeria said on Monday, according to a Facebook post by Bashir Ahmad a Personal Assistant to the President on New Media.
It would be the first time that a foreign head of state would speak with the Nigerian leader since he left the country on January 19 for his medical vacation.
It would also be the first time that Mr. Trump and Mr. Buhari would speak since the inauguration of Trump on January 20.
