President Muhammadu Buhari Thursday afternoon met with the Chief of Defence Staff, General Gabriel Olonisakin, along with the Chinese Ambassador to Nigeria, Ambassador Zhou Pingjian, in the State House.
Although the meeting was a diplomatic affair, it is believed that Olonisakin was invited to the meeting to represent the security angle to the matter.
The meeting was also attended by the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama and Nigeria’s Ambassador to China, Baba Ahmad Jidda.
