Barely 24hours after the Next Level was activated, President Buhari is set to depart Nigeria for the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) summit in Makkah, Saudi Arabia.

According to a statement released by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, President Buhari is “expected to address the forum and underscore the need for member countries to unite and work together to combat common challenges such as terrorism and violent extremism,” at the summit.

Buhari will also push forward themes that have been at the forefront of his domestic and international priorities, including reviving the Lake Chad Basin, investing in Nigeria to create jobs and financing for development.

The 14th session of the Summit Conference of the OIC, scheduled to hold on Friday, May 31, will be hosted by King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud and attended by Heads of State and Governments of Member States.

The good news though is, he won’t be away for months as, President Buhari is expected back to Nigeria on Saturday, June 2nd 2019.
