The President made the appeal on Thursday while hosting the secretary-general of the African petroleum producers’ organization (APPO), Dr. Omar Farouk at the state house in Abuja.

The President’s senior special assistant on media and publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, said Buhari observed Nigeria needs all the resources she can gather from all sources, considering the weight of the responsibility of the nation with “200 million poor people, with a severe deficit in infrastructure”.

He also welcomed the decision of the APPO to cite the headquarters of the African energy investment corporation in Abuja.

Recall that the US government added Sudan to its list of state sponsors of terrorism in 1993 over allegations that al-Bashir’s government was allegedly supporting “terrorist” groups.

US President Donald Trump had said in October that the U.S was going to remove Sudan from the list after Khartoum paid a $335m settlement to American victims of an attack by armed groups on US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania in 1998.
