President Muhammadu Buhari will on Wednesday depart from Nigeria to Dakar, Senegal to participate in the International Development Association (IDA) for Africa Summit.

Daily Independent understand that President Buhari’s trip is coming amid the high wave of attacks in the last 24 hours in the country.

On Tuesday, July 5, bandits opened fire on a convoy of his advance team who were heading for Daura, the president’s hometown in Kastina State.

Also, gunmen broke into Kuje Prison in the nation’s capital and set inmates, including high-profile Boko Haram suspects, free.

Minister of Defence, Bashir Magashi, had said all Boko Haram suspects in custody escaped during the attack.



In a statement issued on Wednesday, Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, said Buhari will be accompanied on the trip by the Ministers of Foreign Affairs, Geoffery Onyeama; Finance, Budget and National Planning, Zainab Ahmed; as well as Industry, Trade and Investment, Adeniyi Adebayo.

He said that at the High-Level event slated for Thursday, July 7 and hosted by President Macky Sall of the Republic of Senegal, President Buhari is expected to join other African leaders in an open Dialogue on Development Challenges and priorities as well as transformational initiatives that will lead to an outcome document, the Dakar Declaration.

The presidential spokesman said this commitment is expected to chart the way forward for the transformation of the economies of these nations in partnership with the World Bank/IDA.

According to him, “Topics slated for discussion include Financing for Recovery and Economic Transformation in Africa; Agriculture, Livestock and Food Security; Human Capital; Digital and Technological Innovation; and Energy Transition and Climate Change.

That’s what Buhari knows how to do best and that’s travel around the world on Air Force one ..Since IBB cut short the man’s overseas trips in 1983 ,so Buhari came back with vexation this time with the aim of actualizing his childhood dream of traveling around the world.A very long standing dream
