President Muhammadu Buhari will today visit Ghana as part of his efforts to deepen relations with the West African country.
According to presidential spokesperson, Femi Adesina, the President will meet with his counterpart, Dramani Mahama, for discussions on bilateral relations, including security and economic ties.
“The President is also expected to meet with members of the Nigerian community in Ghana and entrepreneurs before returning to Abuja on Monday evening,” Adesina said.
The President will be accompanied by the National Security Adviser, Babagana Monguno, a retired Major-General, and permanent secretaries in the ministries of Foreign Affairs, Defence, Justice and Trade, Industry and Investment.
Since becoming President, Buhari has made boosting Nigeria’s relations with other countries a cardinal point. One of his first official assignments was visiting Chad and Niger for talks on security before attending a G-7 meeting in Germany, followed by his invitation by U.S. President, Barack Obama.
