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.

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
