The summit, hosted by the British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, is expected to bring together African leaders, international business chief executives and heads of international organisations.

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.

Presidential spokesman, Femi Adesina, in a statement issued on Thursday, said the event is convened “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.

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

President Buhari is expected back in Abuja next Thursday.

God bless our darling Daddy as he embarks on this journey.
As he is doing everything he can to make our once battered and raped country work again.

May God continue to give him LONG years in good health.
May God continue to give him WISDOM, KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING everyday of his life.

May he go and return safely as always,
and whoever says he will not return peacefully,
Will not be here to read about Baba's return next Thursday.

No be curse,
Na FACT!


God bless Nigeria.

God! Who did Nigeria offend to deserve this? O'Allah! Forgive us, please!
Buhari stands for everything he campaigned against. He perverts justice and take great pride in ruining and dividing Nigeria. This is a man who dressed corruption and nepotism in a new attire. He's dumb as fu*k, he's just clueless.

He's an exemplary hypocrite.
