President Muhammadu Buhari will be embarking on his third foreign visit within eight days today, June 4.
Presidential spokeswoman Femi Adesina said Buhari would travel to Ghana for a special Ecowas summit of heads of state and government.
Political leaders will be discussing the political situation in Mali and other parts of the region.
The statement read as follows;
“President Muhammadu Buhari will attend the Extraordinary Conference of the ECOWAS Authority of Heads of State and Government on the political situation in Mali and other parts of the region.
“The summit at the Presidential Palace in Accra, also known as the Jubilee House, is expected to review the progress made by the Malian military in restoring the country to democracy.
“Heads of State will review the situation in the Republic of Burkina Faso and Guinea.
The President will be accompanied by the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama, the National Security Adviser, Maj-Gen Babagana Monguno (rtd) and the Director-General, National Intelligence Agency (NIA), Amb. Ahmed Rufa’i Abubakar.
“He will return to Abuja on the same day at the end of the Summit.”
