President Muhammadu Buhari is currently in Munich, Germany for the G7 Summit.
Channels TV reports that Buhari will be presenting his “wish list” to the Summit to seek assistance on the country’s most pressing problems.
The G7 had reportedly asked Buhari to prepare the list and present it for their consideration, as a gesture of goodwill towards Nigeria’s new president.
Buhari’s spokesman, Garba Shehu, in a statement from Munich on Sunday revealed that security was the top item on the list. He also stated:
The President said he had used every opportunity at his disposal ahead of the meeting to discuss the country’s needs with specific reference to terrorism and development needs at person-to-person meetings and phone conversations with some of these leaders.
We have a problem which they know. These development issues, many and varied as they are, touch on the economy, combating corruption, increased foreign direct investment, FDI; power and energy, infrastructure, environment, enhanced transparency in elections and good governance.
President Buhari announced that the leaders of the industrialised nations had shown a preparedness to work with Nigeria to help the oil-rich nation out of her problems.
President Buhari will hold meetings on the sidelines with the host, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, the French President, Francois Hollande, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, the Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and the World Bank President Jim Yong Kim.
