French President Emmanuel Macron signs the ‘gold book’ at The Presidential State House in Abuja

While in Nigeria, President Macron will meet with Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari and attend a business forum with French business leaders, a luncheon with the thirty Nigerian private sector leaders and a cultural event at Fela's New Africa Shrine.

The Super Eagles finished as the third best team in Group D after conceding a 2-1 loss to Argentina in their final group game.

The two leaders discussed security in the region, although Macron went further and highlighted the cultural aspect of his visit to Africa's biggest economy.

Sadiku said: "Nigeria remains a good destination for investment in Africa and we are improving the business environment on a daily basis and going to ensure that France investment in Nigeria is win-win affair." . I discovered Nigeria and I discovered Lagos and I discovered the shrine.

He said France planned to launch a season of events meant to be "the face of African culture in Europe".

"First, I think that is such an iconic place for a lot of African people and African culture".

"It will be about a new generation of African artists - for them by them", he said.

24 million viewers watch England make World Cup Quarter Final
Uruguay superstar Edinson Cavani will likely miss their World Cup quarterfinal against France , according to ESPN's Diego Munoz. A strong team is coming and we will keep all the gate receipts from the clash.

"We are delighted and honoured to be hosting a president of one of the world's Super Powers; a permanent member of the United Nation's Security Council with veto rights, a prominent member of the G8 and the World Trade Organisation and a champion of Global Climate Change".

It also doesn't hurt that Macron interned at the French Embassy in Lagos, 15 years ago.

He also said he found his five-year tour of duty in Nigeria very rewarding and extended his country's invitation to President Buhari for an official visit.

Nigeria, Africa's most populous country, has faced the Boko Haram insurgency since 2009, with more than 20,000 people killed and thousands abducted.

Like France, can Nigeria have a young president too?

In another video of the night posted by Afrika Shrine on Instagram, President Macron was caught, along with host, Governor Akinwunmi Ambode, applauding the afro-ballistic performance by Femi Kuti and his Positive Force band.
