President Muhammadu Buhari on Saturday concluded the lesser Hajj to end his visit to Saudi Arabia.

The President and his entourage performed the final Dawaf, which is the circumambulation of the Holy Ka’aba seven times, and offered supplications Allah to round off the pilgrimage.

Buhari and members of the delegation have since left Saudi Arabia for Qatar to attend the meeting of Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), before returning to Nigeria on Monday.

NAN reports that the President departed for Doha, the Qatari capital from Jeddah International Airport at about 3 pm local time.

Before his departure, Buhari was received at the King Abdulaziz International Airport by a high delegation of Saudi officials led by the Governor of Jeddah, Prince Mishaal Bin Majed Bin Abdulaziz.

Others at the airport to bid farewell to the president included the Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II; Emir of Maradun in Zamfara, Alhaji Garba Tambari, Oba of Lagos, Alhaji Rilwan Akiolu and the Otaru of Auchi, Alhaji Haliru Momoh.

Nigerian diplomatic officials in Riyadh, Madina and Jeddah were also at the airport to bid farewell to the president. (NAN)
