Buhari lands in Abuja after visit to Trump, technical stopover in London

During the meeting, President Buhari again blamed the killings in some parts of Nigeria by suspected herdsmen on armed men from Libya.

Yet by 10:00 the following the morning, the aircraft was still stationed in London.

The party also advised the Presidency to reveal the real reasons for the president's "technical stopover" in London. Instead, he had a stopover in London en route Nigeria, during which refuelling and the necessary checks were carried out on the small aircraft he had used for the trip.

President Buhari warned journalists that a media that cavils would only generate unwarranted tension in a plural society like Nigeria.

The Scandinavia chapter of All Progressives Congress (APC) says it is happy with the diplomatic exploits of President Muhammadu Buhari during his visit to the United States.

He said the big presidential jet is undergoing repairs and there was a limit to the travel distance of the small plane his principal was now using.

Trump told Buhari that in return for America's support, USA exporters are "owed" more access to Nigerian markets.

The two have agreed not to cut any of the current five South Korean and four North Korean players for the semifinals. The two Koreas were to compete against each other earlier in a quarterfinal match, with Japan waiting in the semis.

The stopover also raised speculation over the state of Buhari's health, given that he has previously traveled to London for treatment on an undisclosed condition between 2016 and 2017.

The former president said this while responding to a spurious news report claiming he had made a U-turn and now supports Buhari for second term.

The presidential aide said the Nigerian president got everything he wanted from the USA government form his American counterpart during the visit, contrary to expectations of those he described as opponents of his government, in the essay he titled, "Takeaways from the Auspicious Meeting between Presidents Muhammadu Buhari and Donald Trump". Trump had extended this invitation to Nigeria - the largest African country - as a diplomatic gesture to mend fences following his few harsh remarks about the African continent.

Buhari, visiting the United States on a mission to drum up more counterterrorism support and USA business investment, thanked Trump for Washington's support to help rebuild the country's northeast, which has been under assault for nine years from Boko Haram.

Asked when the first deliveries of equipment - including a dozen A-29 Super Tucano light fighter aircraft and unspecified helicopters - would take palce, Trump replied: "Very soon". "So the best thing for me is to keep quiet".

"The technical stopover I talked about is that the journey from United States to Abuja is broken into two".
