CNN - Presidententent Donald Trump has been increasingly chatting with other world leaders during his first weeks in office. On Monday he turned his attention to Africa.



Trump spent Monday morning calling two of the continent's most prominent leaders, Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari and South African President Jacob Zuma, to discuss combating terrorism, trade relations and other issues.

In 2014 nearly 300 girls were kidnapped from a boarding school in Chibok by terror group Boko Haram. Most remain missing, although the terror groupreleased a group of them last October in a deal brokered in part by Nigerian authorities.

Trump also invited President Buhari to Washington at a mutually convenient date. Buhari, who congratulated Trump on his election, is currently in London on an extended break while he awaits the results of unspecified medical tests.

After his call with Buhari, President Trump also requested and completed a phone call with South Africa's Zuma.

Meanwhile, Reno Omokri who is an aide to former president Goodluck Jonathan has confirmed the telephone conversation between President Muhammadu Buhari and Donald Trump and commended the move.

Omokri has been a vocal critic of the Buhari administration but in what many may consider a surprising move commended President Buhari for the willingness to foster a US/Nigeria relationship.

Omokri called on people not to hate on the president even if they do not agree with him as that will be satanic

Read what he said below:
I salute both Presidents Donald J. Trump and Muhammadu Buhari for their call which expressed a willingness to boost US/Nigeria relations. More of this.

Don't allow hatred for Muhammadu Buhari affect your love for Nigeria. The Donald J. Trump/Buhari call indeed took place and is good for Nigeria! Give the man his due. When opposition becomes hatred or death wish, it stops being Godly and starts being satanic. I am an opponent not a hater.


President Buhari congratulated Donald Trump on his successful emergence as president of the US in their telephone conversation.

The two presidents spoke on Monday, February 13, after it was announced that Trump would speak with Buhari in London at 3:45pm with another call to President Jacob Zuma of South Africa.

In a statement by Femi Adesina who is the special adviser to the president on media and publicity, he said Trump commended Buhari in the success recorded in the fight against Boko Haram and promised better collaboration between the two countries.

He also said the US will continue to support Nigeria in the fight against terrorism by providing military weapons.
