For his contributions to the relative political stability in Guinea Bissau, President Muhammadu Buhari is set to be decorated with the country’s highest honour.
Buhari is expected to storm the West African nation on Wednesday, where he would also commission a road named after him, Avenue President Muhammadu Buhari, at the capital city, Guinea Bissau.
According to a terse statement by his spokesperson, Femi Adesina, Buhari has accepted to honour the invitation by the President of Guinea Bissau, Umaro Sissolo Embalo.
The statement also noted that the one-day celebration will highlight the leadership role of President Buhari on the West Coast, particularly in Guinea Bissau.
Buhari had earned the admiration of Guinea Bissau for regularly counselling and motivating their leaders on virtues of peace, political inclusiveness, integrity and stimulating a strong economy that drives collective prosperity.
The visit to Bissau will also afford President Buhari and the Nigerian delegation the opportunity to engage in a bilateral meeting.
The Nigerian President will be accompanied on the trip by the Minister of State, Foreign Affairs, Amb. Zubairu Dada, National Security Adviser, Maj. Gen. Mohammed B. Monguno (retd) and Director General of National Intelligence Agency, Amb Ahmed Rufai Abubakar
