American president, Donald Trump, will make a telephone conversation with Nigeria’s president, Mohammadu Buhari on Monday.
Mr Buhari is still on medical vacation in London.
The telephone conversation billed for 3.45 pm, has been confirmed by presidential spokesman, Femi Adesina.
This is the first time Mr Trump would be speaking to any African leader since assumption of office.
The two leaders may likely talk about the issue of Boko Haram, oil, economy and long-standing bilateral relations between the two countries.
Sources in the Nigerian foreign ministry say there is strong indication that Mr Buhari would seek the support of American government in terms of military hardware to fight terrorism in Nigeria.
There are estimated one million Nigerians living, studying and working in America, just as there are estimated 250,000 US citizens living and working in Nigeria.
The American President has since been putting calls to other world leaders since inauguration.
