Ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo met with Nasir El-Rufai in Abuja at the first Stakeholders’ meeting of the Democratic Republic of Congo-Nigeria Business Council held at the Sheraton Hotel.
The elder statesman at the meeting commended President Muhammadu Buhari for his foresight in creating DR Congo–Nigeria Business Council.
