President Muhammadu Buhari will on Thursday attend the National Day celebration of the Republic of Guinea Bissau.
In a statement, the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina says the President will join the Heads of State and Government of Senegal, Cote d’ Ivoire, Rwanda, Mauritania, Togo and Liberia to mark the 47th independence anniversary of Guinea Bissau.
In Bissau, President Buhari will inaugurate a road named in his honour.
Nigeria and Guinea Bissau established diplomatic relations in 1974.
Following a military coup in that country, Nigeria in 2012 deployed troops under the auspices of ECOWAS Mission in Guinea Bissau to maintain peace.
