Contrary to reports earlier in the media that United States president Barack Obama will be visiting Nigeria by the end of May, a statement from the White House has indicated that Nigeria is not among the list of African countries the US President is scheduled to visit.
The White House statement entitled “Statement by the Press Secretary on the President’s Travel to Africa” reads in part, “President Obama and the First Lady look forward to traveling to Senegal, South Africa, and Tanzania from June 26 – July 3. The President will reinforce the importance that the United States places on our deep and growing ties with countries in sub-Saharan Africa, including through expanding economic growth, investment, and trade; strengthening democratic institutions; and investing in the next generation of African leaders.
“The President will meet with a wide array of leaders from government, business, and civil society, including youth, to discuss our strategic partnerships on bilateral and global issues. The trip will underscore the President’s commitment to broadening and deepening cooperation between the United States and the people of sub-Saharan Africa to advance regional and global peace and prosperity
