… Hosts Ugandan president at Aso Rock
President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday received Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni at the Aso Rock Presidential Villa in Abuja where they met behind closed doors.
Addressing State House correspondents after the two-hour meeting, Museveni said he hoped to float a national airline and build a rail line to facilitate movement from Uganda to Nigeria.
He said both nations had so far enjoyed mutual relationship, especially in the area of security, saying Ugandan military personnel were often sent to Nigeria’s defence institutions for training.
The Ugandan leader said he was pleased with the hospitality given him by Buhari.
Buhari’s wife, Aisha, also received the Ugandan first lady, Janet Museveni, and restated her resolve to change the negative outcomes associated with women and children in Nigeria especially in the areas of health, empowerment and education.
