Buhari leaves Nigeria for The Gambia, Wednesday to attend President’s Inauguration

President Muhammadu Buhari is expected to depart Abuja, on Wednesday, for Banjul, Republic of The Gambia, to attend the inauguration of Gambian President, Adama Barrow.

Barrow has just been re-elected for a second term, a ceremony Buhari is attending as special guest of honour.

In 2017, the former President, Yahya Jammeh, had refused to surrender power after losing the election to Barrow.

Buhari, in conjunction with ECOWAS leaders, moved in to restore democratic rule in The Gambia, which later culminated in Barrow sworn in as President in 2017.

Buhari will be accompanied by the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr Geoffrey Onyeama, National Security Adviser, Maj-Gen Babagana Monguno (rtd), Director-General, National Intelligence Agency, Ambassador Ahmed Rufai, and other top government officials.

He is expected back in the country at the end of the inauguration ceremonies.
