The Nation also reported that the president was later received by Vice-President Kashim Shettima; Mele Kyari, Group Managing Director (GMD) of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation Limited (NNPCL); speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila; and permanent secretary, State House, Tijjani Umar.
