President Buhari reportedly leaving for Washington, DC on Monday
President Muhammadu Buhari will reportedly leave the country on Monday for a visit to Washington, DC, United States.
The trip is at the invitation of the US president Donald Trump, according to Sahara Reporters.
Trump had reportedly extended the invitation in February, shortly after his inauguration.
A source told Sahara Reporters President Buhari will leave his hometown, Daura, at 9:15 AM by helicopter to the Katsina Airport, where he will take the presidential jet to Washington, DC.
The source claimed the president had planned to combine his trip to the US with his participation at the UN General Assembly in New York from September 21 to 25, 2017, but ultimately decided against it.
