The summit, co-hosted by the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Boris Johnson, and the President of Kenya, Uhuru Kenyatta, brought together Heads of State and Government as well as stakeholders and youth leaders, and provided a platform for partners to chart a way forward towards transforming education systems in partner countries, through exchange of best practices.
Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina had in a statement earlier stated that President is expected back to Nigeria by second week of August, 2021.
On Thursday, President Buhari visited former Lagos State Governor and National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, who is said to be recuperating in the United Kingdom.
Presidency sources on Friday hinted that the President’s aircraft would touch down at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International airport, Abuja by 5pm.
