President Muhammadu Buhari welcomed his Ugandan counterpart, Yoweri Museveni to the Presidential Villa, Abuja, the nation’s capital.
THE WHISTLER learnt that Museveni arrived Aso Rock at about 2. 25p.m on Friday, before heading straight to a closed-door meeting with President Buhari.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the Uganda’s president is on a “friendly visit’’ to Nigeria.
It is not clear what both leaders discussed but NAN reports that the Ugandan president has been showing interest and concerns over the activities of the deadly Boko Haram sect operating in Nigeria.
Museveni has been a strong opposition to the dreaded Boko Haram sect which has caused the death of thousands of people especially in Nigeria’s north-east region.
“It would be a mistake for the government of Nigeria to negotiate with these people. The most important thing is to defeat them, then negotiations can come after that,’’ the Ugandan president was quoted as saying in May 2014.
