JUST IN Why I accepted to serve- Festus Keyamo

Dangote spoke on Monday, April 30 shortly after President Muhammadu Buhari's meeting with a group of USA agricultural business companies.

The party said this further confirming the stand of the PDP that the All Progressives Congress (APC) is running a moribund economy.

The statement reads: "Our attention has been drawn to the moves by the federal government under President Muhammadu Buhari to scuttle the forthcoming convention of the National Association of Nigerian Students, for selfish reasons".

President Muhammadu Buhari has departed the United States of America after a one-day working visit to Washington DC, the country's capital. He said: "You're the first leader from sub Saharan Africa to visit President Trump here at the White House".

"I'm not sure about, you know, the validity of whether that allegation against the president is true or not", he said. It is also important that we further remind the United States presidency the enormity of the brutality and cold blooded massacre of innocent citizens merely exercising their right to freedom of assembly on that fateful day of January 20, 2017.

Mr Buhari again lamented the challenges of the country's youth bulge, with "sixty per cent of the population below 30 years".

It would be recalled that the Chairman, Nigeria Governors' Forum, Governor Abdulaziz Yari, had in February said creation of state police would help in addressing spate of insecurity in the country. And you want to add more financial burden to the states.

Trump says they will discuss terrorism and trade. Thousands of people have been killed.

The party subsequently issued a red card and vote of no confidence on President Buhari and his cabinet over its failures in the areas of security, education, science and technology and economic growth viewed against socioeconomic policies and programmes, infrastructure development, employment generation, good governance initiatives and war against corruption, among others.

The Nigerian president's visit follows an uncomfortable start to the Trump administration's approach to the world's second most populous continent.

In January, reports surfaced that Trump was unhappy that immigrants were coming into the US from "sh*thole countries", such as Haiti and some African nations.

Trump caused anger in Nigeria previous year after reports that he said Nigerians wouldn't want to return to their "huts" if allowed to visit the U.S.
