The Presidency has insisted that President Muhammadu Buhari's meeting with his United States counterpart, Donald Trump, was very successful.

Meanwhile, President Buhari is said to have had "a technical stop" over in London, on his way back to the country.

Garba Shehu, the president's special assistant on media and publicity, made the clarification few hours after telling newsmen that the President Buhari and his team made a "technical stopover" in the British capital.

During the one-on-one meeting with President Buhari on Monday, the US President had said: "We have met before, developing a great relationship".

This, the presidential aide said, was because the president's main aircraft was undergoing repairs, hence his principal made the United States trip using a smaller jet.

"President Buhari, to the disappointment of this group, delivered a calm, brilliant performance".

Notably, Goldman brought on Justin Schmidt as vice president and head of digital asset markets in the firm's securities division. However, as reported by CNBC, he stresses that "we're clearing futures in bitcoins for some of our futures clients".

"He said President Buhari "is a rare leader;' he said 'I respect him a lot" and said our leader had 'succeeded in cutting down corruption.' He called President Buhari a "valued partner" and a 'strong democrat'".

Malami explained that the technicalities involved were being taken care of by both officials of the Nigerian government and also from the USA side.

"The over $500m is not all the recovery, it is only for the immediate repatriation while we continue with our efforts to recover more".

"The President expressed appreciation for these and requested additional support to counter insurgency".

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has alleged that the aloofness of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led All Progressives Congress (APC) administration on issues of security was responsible for the escalated killings in Nigeria.
