President Muhammadu Buhari will depart on his third international trip within the week.
On 26 June, the president and members of his family attended the Extraordinary Summit of the African Union in Malabo, Equatorial Guinea.
Buhari conducted a three-day state visit to Spain shortly after returning from the nation.
In a statement released on Saturday, presidential spokesman Femi Adesina revealed that President Buhari is scheduled to travel abroad again, this time to Ghana.
“President Muhammadu Buhari will attend an Extraordinary Summit of the ECOWAS Authority of Heads of State and Government on the political situation in Mali and other parts of the sub-region today, Saturday, June 4, in Accra, Ghana.
“The Summit, which will be held in the Presidential Palace in Accra, also known as the Jubilee House, is anticipated to review the progress achieved by Mali’s military junta toward restoring democratic governance.
“The Heads of State will also assess the situation in the Republics of Burkina Faso and Guinea.
“The President will be joined by the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama, the National Security Adviser, Major-General Babagana Monguno (retired), and the Director-General of the National Intelligence Agency, Amb. Ahmed Rufa’i Abubakar.
At the conclusion of the Summit, he will immediately return to Abuja.
Buhari’s most recent trip occurs at a time when the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) is attempting to put its house in right ahead of its rescheduled presidential primaries.
Buhari was absent from the nation when the party postponed the exercise by one week in response to the extension granted by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
Primary elections will now take place on June 6, 7, and 8
