Tuesday- 27th July, 2021: Nigerian President, Muhammadu Buhari has arrived London to participate in the Global Education Summit on Financing Global Partnership for Education (GPE) 2021 to 2025.

Buhari would also use the opportunity to London to see his doctors.

Recall that CEOAFRICA had earlier reported that the president departed the country yesterday, 26th July, 2021.

His aircraft landed at Stansted International Airport, London at about 11:20pm (local time) with the temperature at 22 degrees celsius.

The summit, according to the President’s spokesman, Mr Femi Adesina, would be co-hosted by the Prime Minister of the UK, Boris Johnson, and the President of Kenya, Uhuru Kenyatta.

He said the summit will bring together Heads of State and Government as well as stakeholders and youth leaders, and provide a platform for partners to chart a way forward toward transforming education systems in partner countries through exchange of best practices.

“It will also offer the opportunity for leaders to make 5-year pledges to support GPE’s work to help transform education systems in up to 90 countries and territories.

“Deliberations at the Summit will focus on: ‘The Power of Education –A Conversation between Global Champions’; ‘Transforming Education for Girls’; ‘Financing for Impact and Recovery’; and ‘What Now? Priorities for Transforming Education in the Coming Five Years’, among others,’’ Adesina stated.

He said the Nigerian leader would also hold a bilateral meeting with the British prime minister.

After the Summit, Adesina said, Buhari will spend a few days to keep a scheduled medical appointment.

“He is due back by second week of August 2021,’’ he said
