US President Donald Trump may be having a telephone conversation with his Nigerian counterpart, Muhammadu Buhari on Monday, February 13, 2017, a Channels TV report said.

Buhari is presently on an indefinite medical vacation in London.

“The telephone conversation billed for 3:45 p.m. has been confirmed by the Femi Adesina, a spokesperson to President Buhari,” the report said.

It added that this is the first time President Trump would be speaking to any African leader since assumption of office.

“It is not clear what the conversation will center on, but the two leaders may be taking a look at the travel ban contained in Trump’s executive order and how it may affect Nigeria and the United States who have enjoyed good relations over the years,” Channels reports.

“The American President has since been putting calls to other world leaders to enunciate his action plans towards the eradication of terrorism in America.”

There is no official communication on this phone conversation from either Aso Rock or the White House.

A South African journalist, Geoffrey York, who works with The Globe and Mail, reports that Trump will also be speaking with President Jacob Zuma.
