President Muhammadu Buhari sets to attend the second-term inauguration of his Gambian counterpart, Adama Barrow, on Wednesday.
In a statement by the presidential spokesman, Garba Shehu, Buhari will be hosted by the Gambian President alongside other African leaders as a Special Guest of Honour at the Independence Stadium, Bakau.
Garba Shehu noted that Buhari played a major role in the return of Gambia to democracy in 2017.
Part of the statement reads, “President Buhari along with other ECOWAS leaders, played a leading role in the restoration of democratic rule in The Gambia in 2017 after former President, Yahya Jammeh, refused to surrender power after losing the election.”
He added that the president is expected to be back to Nigeria at the end of the inauguration ceremonies.
