Buhari Set For Ghana Trip
President Muhammadu Buhari's jet is set for a trip to Ghana.
He will leave Nigeria on Monday for Accra, Ghana to attend the country’s 61st Independence Anniversary celebrations.
The celebration will hold at the Independence Square on Tuesday, March 6.
Nigeria's President is said to be the only foreign leader invited to the event as the Special Guest of Honour.
"Similarly, other than his host, President Nana Akufo-Addo, the Nigerian leader is the only foreign guest scheduled to address the august gathering," a statement by the spokesman, Femi Adesina, for the President said on Sunday.
The Presidency said that at the occasion, President Buhari would reaffirm the long-standing warm relations between the peoples and governments of both brotherly nations.
"He will also underscore Nigeria's commitment to strengthening the bilateral ties in furtherance of democracy, good governance and overall development not only in the West African sub-region, but also the African continent.
"The President and his delegation which includes, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama, and the National Security Adviser, Babagana Monguno, will return to Abuja after the celebrations on Tuesday," the statement added.
