President Muhammadu Buhari and the visiting Secretary-General of the United Nations, Antonio Gutteres, on Wednesday, engaged in talks bordering on war against terrorism, food security and other international issues.

The News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, reports that the Nigerian leader welcomed Mr Guterres at the State House at about 3.p.m., before going into closed-door discussions on matters affecting Nigeria, Africa and the world at large.

The UN boss, who arrived in Nigeria on a two-day visit, was in Maiduguri, Borno, where he interacted with victims and repentant Islamist militants, on Tuesday.

Mr Gutteres, who is visiting Nigeria for the first time since he assumed duty as UN secretary-general, had before the meeting with President Buhari, performed a wreath-laying ceremony for victims of the 2011 bombing at Nigeria’s UN House in Abuja.
