Pandemonium in Aso Rock as Buhari jets out again

At the wake of the controversy surrounding the 2016 budget, ‎President Muhammadu Buhari, will on Sunday, January 17, embark on a 3 day official visit to the United Arab Emirates, UAE.

This is coming after the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, indicted Buhari’s Senior Special Adviser, SSA, on National Assembly Matters, Senator Ita Enang, over plot to smuggle a ‘fake budget’ into the National Assembly.

In a press statement received by Post-Nigeria from the President’s ‎Spokesperson, Garba Shehu, Nigeria is expected to get more support from the UAE for its war against terrorism and the recovery of stolen funds.

“In the course of the visit, President Buhari will join the Secretary General of the United Nations, Mr. Ban Ki Moon, Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Zayed Al-Nahyan of Abu Dhabi and other participants as a special guest of honour at this year’s edition of the World Future Energy Summit.

“The Summit which is now in its ninth year of its existence has developed into one of the world’s most influential event dedicated to advancing future energy, energy efficiency and clean technologies.

“In a move signalling Nigeria’s re-engagement with the Middle-East region, President Buhari will also lead a team of his ministers to bilateral talks with the government of the UAE.
