Buhari To Travel To Jordan Two Days After Returning From Abidjan

President Muhammadu Buhari will on Saturday jet out to Jordan after returning on Thursday from a two-day AU-EU summit held in Abidjan, the Cote d’ Ivoire capital.

He will join other Heads of State in Aqaba, Jordan, on December 2 and 3 to review strategies in fighting terrorism, and reinforce joint security structures that will be more proactive in preventing attacks.

The meeting which will be hosted by King Abdullah II of Jordan is expected to be attended by West African Heads of State, representatives of governments of 48 countries and a number of key Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs).

At the meeting, Buhari is expected to share Nigeria’s experience on terrorism and its spread across West Africa, with a view to soliciting more support for pre-emptive measures that will neutralise the activities of insurgents in the sub-region. He will also hold bilateral meetings with some Heads of State to strengthen relations.

The President will be accompanied to Jordan by the governors of Kogi, Osun and Niger States; the Ministers of Defence, Education, Foreign Affairs; the National Security Adviser, and the Acting Director-General of the National Intelligence Agency.
