President Muhammadu Buhari met behind closed doors with the outgoing President Mahamadou Issoufou of the Republic of Niger at the State House, Abuja on Tuesday.
Issoufou, it was gathered, would use the opportunity of the meeting to thank President Buhari for the support and assistance rendered to his country during his first and second terms in office.
NAN reports that a road, behind Department of State Services (DSS) quarters, Asokoro, was named after the visiting Nigerien leader, who was accompanied by Governors of Zamfara, Kebbi, Jigawa, Kano, Yobe and Sokoto states.
Nigeria had facilitated the transportation and other logistic needs of the recently concluded national elections in the Niger Republic. (NAN)
