USAfrica, June 8, 2011: In continuing the U.S government’s bilateral and regional interests with the two countries, President Barack Obama will today and Thursday meet with two major oil producing countries.

In a White House statement sent to USAfrica multimedia networks Houston, the President Obama “will welcome President Goodluck Jonathan of Nigeria to the White House on Wednesday, June 8.  The President looks forward to consulting with President Jonathan on the latest regional and global developments, and deepening our strong bilateral partnership.” Jonathan was sworn in on May 29, 2011 in Abuja, after a disputed election in April. Many observers consider his elections as largely fair.
On Thursday, June 9, the White House notes that Obama’s meeting with President Ali Bongo Ondimba of Gabon (whose country holds the presidency of the United Nations Security Council for the month of June 2011) will seek “to advance the important partnership between the United States and Gabon on a range of critical regional and global issues.”
Also, in 2 weeks, U.S First Lady Michelle Obama will travel to Johannesburg and Cape Town in South Africa and Gaborone in Botswana from June 21 – 26 where, USAfricaonline.com is informed she will highlight issues on youth leadership, education, health and wellness. Her mother, Mrs. Robinson and her daughters, Malia and Sasha Obama will join her for the trip.
