Now that Broadcom has withdrawn its offer, and its nominated directors, it remains to be seen what's going to happen next. The Presidential order is seen as a move to shelter United States companies from foreign competition.

The president is on his way to Yobe State, his first visit there since over 100 girls were abducted from their school in Dapchi.

Ezekwesili added, "The key point is that within seven days of our demanding the response to our 14 questions we shall be suing the Federal Government of Nigeria for gross negligence that led to the abduction of the girls".

The kidnapping is one of the largest since the jihadist group abducted more than 270 schoolgirls from the northeastern town of Chibok in 2014.

Following his arrival in Damaturu, President Buhari is expected to meet with stakeholders - including the state governor, Mr Ibrahim Gaidam, and parents of the abducted students of the Government Girls Science Technical College (GGSTC), Dapchi.
