President Buhari returns to London for the first time in 2020

President Muhammadu Buhari has departed Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory of Nigeria for the first time in 2020 to participate in the inaugural UK-Africa Investment Summit holding in London on Monday.

The London Investment Summit would be hosted by the British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson.

According to the organisers, the event is expected to bring together African leaders, international business chief executives and heads of international organisations “to create new partnerships that will deliver more investments and jobs” to the benefit of people and businesses in African countries and the United Kingdom.

“Apart from highlighting new perspectives on UK-Africa Partnership for Prosperity, issues of Sustainable Finance and Infrastructure; Trade and Investment; Future African Growth Sectors and Clean Energy and Climate, are expected to dominate presentations and discussions during the Summit."

The president had earlier performed some official assignments, including his meeting with security chiefs, before leaving the presidential villa for the London trip.

Recall that the President has been heavily criticised for his frequent travels since 2015. One of his favourite destinations for most of his travels in 5 years is the Queen's city of London.  However, this trip promises to be a rewarding one for the country.
