Buhari Departs Nigeria For Cote d’Ivoire To Attend The 5th European Union-African Union Summit

President Muhammadu Buhari will be departing the country on Tuesday for the 5th European Union-African Union (EU-AU) summit in Abidjan, capital of Cote d’Ivoire.


Two governors – Udom Emmanuel Akwa Ibom and Mohammed Abubakar (Bauchi) – are among those who would accompany the president.

According to a statement released by special adviser to the president on media and publicity, Femi Adesina, the president will participate in working sessions on the Summit theme: ‘Investing in the Youth for a Sustainable Development,’ and on the margins of the Summit, meet with a number of African heads of state and their European Union counterparts.

Buhari will use the occasion of the summit to reiterate Nigeria’s readiness to work with African and European countries to address the challenges affecting both continents, such as peace and security.

The Nigerian leader will attend the official luncheon to be hosted by the government of Cote d’Ivoire in honour of visiting heads of state and government and other delegations. According to the organisers, 83 heads of state representing 55 African countries and 28 European countries are slated to attend this high-level meeting.


  1. Safe journey.

    Your comment will be visible after approval

  2. He better not go there and disgrace us again by saying Nigerians are corrupt thereby chasing investors away.

  3. The way mr president has been strong these days, traveling, holding meetings upon meetings without going for check up

  4. I hope Buhari will not fold to the European Unions pressure to allow Morroco join the African Union.

    Buhari better protect our interest in this meeting because the sustainance of our industries in West Africa will be jeopardized if Morroco joins African union.

    Anyway we are watching,better to follow the summit on BBC Africa
