Buhari leaves for US tomorrowMarch 30th


President Buhari will depart Abuja for Washington DC, USA
tomorrow Wednesday, March 30th to attend the 4th
Nuclear Security Summit which opens on Thursday March
A statement by presidential spokesperson, Femi Adesina,
says that at the plenary sessions of the summit which is
dedicated to reinforcing international commitment to the
non-proliferation of nuclear weapons, President Buhari will
insist that while Nigeria will continue to sustain that
commitment, world powers must respect the right of other
countries to the peaceful use of nuclear energy for
development purposes.
The President will reaffirm Nigeria’s stance that
international efforts to ensure greater security of nuclear
materials should maintain a balance between nuclear non-
proliferation obligations and the indisputable right of
Nigeria and other countries to harness nuclear energy and
technology for socio-economic development.
It will be recalled that at a meeting with him in Abuja earlier
this month, President Buhari told the Director-General of the
International Atomic Energy Agency, Mr. Yukiya Amano
that the Federal Government will welcome greater support
from the agency for Nigeria’s aspiration to begin the
generation of electricity with nuclear energy.
While in Washington DC for the Nuclear Security Summit,
Buhari and his delegation which includes Governor
Mohammed Abubakar of Bauchi State, Governor
Abdulfatah Ahmed of Kwara State, the Minister of Foreign
Affairs, Mr. Geoffrey Onyeama, the National Security
Adviser, Maj.-Gen. Babagana Monguno (rtd.) and the
Director-General of Nigeria’s Nuclear Regulatory Agency,
Prof Lawrence Anikwe Dim, will also hold bilateral meetings
with other participating Heads of Government and high-
ranking United States Government officials. President
Buhari will depart Washington DC for Abuja on Sunday April
