President Muhammadu Buhari is to depart Abuja, on Monday, to attend a three-day Russia-Africa Summit in Sochi, Russia, between October 23 and October 25.

A statement by the President’s spokesman, Malam Garba Shehu, in Abuja, on Sunday, said the summit would focus on exploring and expanding opportunities in security, trade and investment, science and technology, and gas production.

During the summit, according to the statement, Buhari will meet with President Vladimir Putin of Russia to further strengthen relations between Nigeria and Russia.

Shehu stated that the two leaders would hold bilateral talks on security, trade and investment, and building a partnership that would enhance Nigeria’s huge gas potential, following Russia’s remarkable success in gas exportation.

“The summit, which will be attended by African Heads of State, will bring fresh perspectives on some global issues and challenges like nuclear technology, energy development, digital transformation, environment, technical security, mining and steel, education, agriculture, infrastructure and development strategies.

“An African Business Forum, which will bring together African and Russian business leaders, will be held during the event to enhance Russian investments in Africa, and promote African business interest in the host country,” he added.

The Presidential aide disclosed that Buhari would be accompanied by Governors Muhammad Yahaya of Gombe State, Bello Matawalle of Zamfara State, and Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State.

Others on the trip are Minister for Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama; Minister for Trade Industry and Investment, Adeniyi Adebayo; Minister for Mines and Steel Development, Olamilekan Adegbite; and Minister of State for Petroleum, Timipre Sylva. (Vanguard)
