G7 summit: Cameron urges Buhari to come with Nigeria’s ‘wish list’


By Levinus Nwabughiogu

The British Prime Minister, David Cameron,  has  asked  President Muhammadu Buhari to come  to  the “G 7” industrialized nations  meeting with a “wish list” on  June 7-9 in Berlin, Germany.

Delivering this message to the President at a meeting on Friday shortly after the inauguration, British Secretary for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, Philip Hammond, said his Prime Minister had requested for a list of what Nigeria wanted to help succeed against the  challenges facing the country.

“We are waiting for your own list,” said the minister on behalf of Cameron.

He also raised the issue of “free trade” between the EU and Africa, a proposal he said enjoyed the support of several countries on the continent and in support of which he sought to enlist the backing of President Buhari.
