G7 SUMMIT: British PM, David Cameron Urges President Buhari To Come With Nigeria's Shopping List

The British Prime Minister, David Cameron has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to come with requests from Nigeria to the "G7" industrialized nations when he shows up at its meeting, scheduled for June 7-9 in Berlin, Germany.

Delivering this message to the new President at a meeting on Friday shortly after the inauguration, British Secretary for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, Philip Hammond said his Prime Minister had requested for a list of what Nigeria wanted to help succeed in the face of the current challenges in the country.

"We are waiting for your own list," said the minister on behalf of Cameron.

A statement issued by Head, President Muhammadu Buhari Media Team, Garba Shehu said the meeting was a follow-up to an earlier one between the then President-elect and Prime minister Cameron, at which commitments were given to the in-coming administration in several areas, including the fight against terrorism, power and energy and such matters of common concerns of migration challenges facing the continent as well what he called "intelligence fusion" to secure Africa from global terror.

He also raised the issue of "free trade" between the EU and Africa, a proposal he said enjoyed the support of several countries on the continent and in support of which he sought to enlist the backing of President Buhari.

The President in turn promised to prepare the government's aspirations for the summit which he said he will attend.
