Buhari meets Liberian President Sirleaf

President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday in Abuja met with the Liberian President, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, behind closed doors.

President Buhari is expected to leave Abuja later today for the forum in Dakar, Senegal.

Sirleaf, who is the current Chairperson of the Authority of Heads of State and Government of the Economic Community of West African States, is expected to brief President Buhari on efforts made to curb terrorism in the sub-region.

The two leaders are also likely to discuss other issues bordering on sub-regional integration and bilateral trade.
