Buhari set to mingle with Nigerians in the States

20 July 2015, 07:12Okoro Chinedu

Lagos - Nigerians in the United States have been afforded an opportunity to interact with President Muhammadu Buhari during his visit to the US.

The All Progressives Congress (APC) International has planned the event, where Nigerians are set to raise issues of their concern.

Buhari will begin his visit to the States on Monday.

“This visit will also avail Nigerians the opportunity to meet face to face with the President, and advise Nigerians present at the Town Hall meeting scheduled for Tuesday at the Embassy between 06.00 pm to 08.00 pm will voice worries and join the fight against corruption, among others,” said Francis John, Coordinator of the APC USA International Secretariat.

The organisation welcomed Buhari’s visit.

“We are very glad this visit is taking place, and expect delegates to take advantage of this trip and make the best, to best of your knowledge, to the benefit of Nigerian populace. This opportunity is very rear and advised, whatever discussed and signed must be strictly adhered to, so as to keep the mutual relationship going and positive,” John added.

He said the visit would give credence to Diaspora Nigerians, and suggest Diaspora Nigerians to volunteer in running the affairs of the nation.

“Now that we have a credible President in place, (we are) prepared to offer the best services ever in the history of Nigeria. To be straight from the shoulders, we employ President Buhari to reconsider Diaspora Nigerians willing to offers spectacular services.”

Meanwhile, arrangements are in the pipeline for APC USA to meet some delegates, specifically to familiarize and present issues needing attentions in the nation.

“We want to thank (US) President Barack Obama for this invitation; for finding President Buhari worthy among past Nigerian rulers,” said John.

He urged Obama to reconsider a trip to Nigeria shortly and receive “the best hospitality ever in all his trips to the most populous Black nation on earth."

“More so, the black race will be very proud of you (Obama). This visit is beyond image making for Nigeria,” added John.
