Buhari To Discuss Boko Haram, Money On Paris Trip

President Muhammadu Buhari will seek support for his battle against Boko Haram on a trip to Paris that starts Monday, more than three months after he took charge of Africa’s largest economy. According to Vanguard, the 72-year-old former military ruler will spend three days in Paris, during which he will hold talks with his French counterpart Francois Hollande and other ministers on defence, security, trade and investment in his oil-rich country.

Buhari has made defeating Boko Haram a priority since he came to power in May, after six years of bloodshed that has left at least 15,000 dead and made more than two million others homeless. Anglophone Nigeria is in a coalition with Cameroon, Chad, Niger and Benin, and overcoming historically suspicious ties with its French-speaking neighbours is seen as key to defeating the Islamist militants.
