Bill Gates discusses AIDS with Nigeria leader

Microsoft Corp. founder Bill Gates met President Olusegun Obasanjo this weekend for talks on fighting poverty and disease on the world's poorest continent, a senior official said Sunday.

Information Minister Frank Nweke said Gates arrived in Nigeria with his wife, Melinda, on Saturday and met with Obasanjo at his farm on the outskirts of the country's biggest city, Lagos.

With an endowment of $31.9 billion, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has granted more than $11 billion since its inception in 2000 to projects to help ease extreme poverty in more than 100 countries.
