President Muhammadu Buhari will leave Nigeria this morning to attend the G7 Summit scheduled to take place in Bavaria, Germany, from June 7 to June 8.

This is contained in a statement released in Abuja on Saturday by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Mal. Garba Shehu.

It said that the invitation was extended to President Buhari by German Chancellor Angela Merkel even before he was sworn in on May 29 as the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

“The invitation is a clear indication of the international community’s willingness to cooperate with the new government of Nigeria,” it said.

The statement added that President Buhari would not be participating in the main meetings since Nigeria is not a member of the G7 group.

“He is in a group of seven other Heads of State who were called in as guests. He will equally be holding key side meetings with some of the seven Heads of State who will be convened at the summit.

“The international community is obviously acknowledging Nigeria’s significant role in global affairs, especially with the recent change in government,” the statement added. (NAN)
