U.S. President Barack Obama will host Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari at the White House on July 20, the White House National Security Council said on Thursday.

"The visit will underscore our commitment to expanding our partnership with Nigeria's new government and support for the Nigerian people," the White House said on Twitter.

During the visit, Obama will discuss "a holistic, regional approach to combating Boko Haram" with President Buhari, who has led Africa's biggest economy and most populous country since being elected in March.

During the visit, advancing economic and political reforms in Nigeria will also be discussed between senior government advisers from both countries, the White House said.

Obama and other leaders met with Buhari at the G7 summit earlier this month to discuss efforts at combating Islamist militants.
