Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari will be travelling to London for medicals and he will also visit Kenya, says a presidential statement released on Tuesday.
Femi Adesina, the special adviser to President Buhari on Media, said his principal would first visit Kenya to participate in commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the United Nations Environmental Programme.
Adesina said Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta had invited Buhari to the event, scheduled for the 3rd – 4th of March 2022 in Nairobi.
Adesina said President Buhari, at the event, will deliver Nigeria’s ‘National Statement’ and partake in ‘High-Level Dialogue Sessions on the Environment’.
He adds that the organisers of the event expect “member states to address the world’s biggest environmental challenges”, since they are “vital partners in formulating UNEP’s policy, implementing UNEP’s programme and championing solutions to our shared environmental challenges.”
The president will thereafter proceed to London for routine medical checks, which will last two weeks.
On Buhari’s entourage are Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama, Minister of State for the Environment, Sharon Ikeazor, National Security Adviser, Major General Babagana Monguno (retd), Director General, National Intelligence Agency, Ahmed Abubakar, and the Chief Executive Officer of Nigerians in Diaspora Commission, Abike Dabiri-Erewa.
