President Muhamamdu Buhari has received the UN Secretary General, Antonio Guterres at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The UN Scribe arrived at the forecourt of Nigeria’s seat of power at 14:00 GMT, where he was welcomed by the Nigerian leader.
The two leaders immediately went into a closed session, where they are expected to extensively deliberate on issues surrounding security and the humanitarian crisis troubling the North-East and some parts of Nigeria.
Guterres will later address Sate House Correspondents at the end of his closed door meeting with President Buhari.
The UN Scribe, who paid a working visit to Maiduguri, Borno State on Tuesday, had earlier paid similar visits to neighbouring Niger Republic and Senegal.
