President Buhari Meets With French President, Ahead Of His Visit To Nigeria (Photos)

President Muhammadu Buhari met with French President, Emmanuel Macron at the closing ceremony of the 31st Session of the Africa Union Summit today in Nouakchott, Islamic Republic of Mauritania.
More than 40 African leaders have gathered in Mauritania to discuss ways to fight corruption and extremism. The African Union (AU) has called for action regarding the situation in South Sudan, where a recent ceasefire agreement between feuding parties collapsed soon after it was reached.
The AU is struggling to solve regional crises, including the conflict in South Sudan, Somalia and Libya.
Meanwhile, French leader Emmanuel Macron will on Tuesday visit a nightclub founded by Nigerian music legend Fela Kuti, becoming the first “real president” to enter a venue synonymous with marijuana smoke, sexy backup dancers and protest music.
The New Afrika Shrine located in the teeming Lagos district of Ikeja replaced Fela Kuti’s original club that burnt down in 1977, but for millions of fans it still represents the original Shrine built by the musical maverick.
“The Shrine is a must-see place,” said Olivier Laouchez, the head of the TRACE media and entertainment group and organiser of the event Macron will attend, adding that Lagos is “Africa’s cultural capital”.
The evening will feature concerts, fashion shows by leading African designers and a meeting with stars from Nigeria’s booming Nollywood film industry.
