BREAKING: Buhari Meets US Secretary of State, Blinken In Aso Rock

President Muhammdu Buhari is currently in a closed-door meeting with the United States Secretary of State, Anthony Blinken, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Naija News reports that Blinken landed at the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport, Abuja, around 3:15pm and arrived at Aso Rock Villa around 3:47pm.

The US top diplomat was received at the forecourt by State Chief of Protocol (SCOP), Ambassador Lawal Kazaure, who led him to the President’s office.

Some of the issues expected to be discussed are security, cooperation on global health security, expanding energy access and revitalizing democracy.


After the meeting with Buhari, Blinken will have a discussion with Vice President Yemi Osinbajo where they will sign some agreements between Nigeria and the US.

He will thereafter hold a joint press conference with Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama, before departing the Presidential Villa.

Bliken is on the second leg of his three-nation tour of Africa after meeting with Kenya officials led by President Uhuru Kenyatta in Nairobi on Tuesday.

The Secretary of State is the highest-ranking US official to visit sub-Saharan Africa since President Joe Biden came into power in January.
