Nigerian leader, President Muhammadu Buhari is leaving Abuja for Zinder in Niger Republic today to participate in the 60th anniversary of the formal Proclamation of the Republic of Niger.

President Buhari will join fellow West African leaders as Special Guest of Honour as Nigeria’s northern neighbour commemorates December 18, 1958, the date of its founding as a Republic and the creation of the Presidency even before it gained complete Independence from France on August 3, 1960.

The information is contained in a statement issued today in Abuja by the President's Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina.

The statement reads “The participation of the Nigerian leader is in furtherance of the deep historical and cultural relations between the governments and peoples of both friendly nations. Activities lined up for the celebrations in the ancient south-central town and former capital of Niger which lies 240km north of Kano, include military parade, cultural and artistic displays.

In the President's entourage are Governors Mohammed Badaru Abubakar, Nasir Ahmad el-Rufai and Adegboyega Oyetola of Jigawa, Kaduna and Osun States alongside the Minister of State, Foreign Affairs, Khadija Bukar Abba Ibrahim.
