President Buhari Leaves For London To Attend UK-Africa Investment Summit

President Muhammadu Buhari will depart Abuja Friday for London to participate in the inaugural UK-Africa Investment Summit holding on Monday, January 20, 2020.

Hosted by the British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, the event, according to the organisers, is expected to bring together African leaders, international business chief executives and heads of international organisations “to create new partnerships that will deliver more investments and jobs” to the benefit of people and businesses in African countries and the United Kingdom.

Apart from highlighting new perspectives on UK-Africa Partnership for Prosperity, issues of Sustainable Finance and Infrastructure; Trade and Investment; Future African Growth Sectors and Clean Energy and Climate, are expected to dominate presentations and discussions during the Summit.

With the expected take-off of the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) in mid-2020, the London investment summit will provide Nigeria with the opportunity to project itself as a leading investment destination for new industries.

In addition, the summit will deepen Nigeria-United Kingdom investment ties post-Brexit given that Africa currently represents just two per cent of British trade activity, with Nigeria accounting for only 10 per cent of that total.

The Nigerian delegation to the investment meeting will further showcase what the Federal Government has done through policies and legislations to improve the investment and business climate in the country.

While in the United Kingdom, President Buhari will hold a meeting with the Head of the Commonwealth, Prince Charles in Glasgow, Scotland.

The President and his delegation will also have bilateral meetings with Prime Minister Johnson as well as heads of multilateral organisations.
President Buhari will be accompanied to the Summit by Governors Yahaya Bello, Muhammad Inuwa Yahaya and Okezie Ikpeazu of Kogi, Gombe and Abia States respectively.

Also on the presidential entourage are the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama; Minister of Industry, Trade and Investment, Otunba Niyi Adebayo; the Minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning, Zainab Ahmed; the National Security Adviser (NSA), Maj-Gen. Babagana Monguno (retd); and the Director General, National Intelligence Agency (NIA), Ambassador Ahmed Rufai Abubakar .
President Buhari is expected back in Abuja next Thursday.


  1. Our President and his many trips.

  2. Of course, he must have put a devilish agenda in motion that would take effect when he is out, so they can use their favorite line of excuse when they meet a brick wall "Buhari doesn't know".. Ode
    Don't forget to grant interview when you're there, cos na when you dey abroad you dey always follow Nigerians talk.. stupid Ayala. Olodo

  3. Ajala the president..

    1. Hahhahha really ajala the traveller.

  4. Audio president, he's always on the move, he should first practice what he preach. Summit that VP or anyone can represent him, I won't be surprised if he's leaving for a medical check up.

  5. Touring the world at Nigerian expense
    He has forgotten it is a debt that must be paid

    If he doesn't add value for it
    Then he owes Nigeria
    Baba you are not a tourist
    Add value with all this wakawaka

  6. He is going for medical check up, they should be out with it

  7. They forgot to add ‘the president will go for medical checkup’.......

    1. Exactly. They think they are smart.
