President Muhammadu Buhari is scheduled to depart Abuja today for Paris, France. According to a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, the President is scheduled to participate in the first edition of the Paris Peace Forum slated for the eleventh to the thirteenth of November.
Adesina said the forum, organized by the French Government and a number of Non-Governmental Organizations, was based on the simple idea that international cooperation is key to tackling global challenges and ensuring durable peace.
The presidential spokesman said the Nigerian President would join the United Nations Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres, and other world leaders in discussing contributions towards global peace while underscoring the imperative of collective action.
Before returning to Abuja, the President and his delegation will have an interactive session with the Nigerian community in France. President Buhari will be accompanied on the trip by the governors of Katsina, Anambra and Ekiti state and other top government officials.
