President Muhammadu Buhari has returned to Abuja, the country’s capital after taking part in the 36th Summit of the African Union (AU) in Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia.
Buhari had left the country last Thursday afternoon for the Summit.
The three-day outing included high-level meetings on peace and security, climate change and the political situation in some West African countries.
The President also took part in an Extraordinary Summit of the Authority of Heads of State and Government of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), which held on the sidelines of the main event.
The AU Summit had the theme: “Acceleration of the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) Implementation”.
During the Summit, Buhari presented Nigeria’s positions on critical continental issues, including urging member-states of the Union to ratify the (AfCFTA) Agreement for the economic development of the continent, as well as calling on them to strengthen early warning systems to rein in conflicts.
Upon his return to the country, the President is expected to lead other leaders of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), which includes the presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, to Lagos on Tuesday for the ultimate rally of the party’s presidential campaigns.
