Why I traveled to Cote d'Ivoire with governors

President Muhammadu Buhari has given the most obvious hint so far that he will be contesting in the 2019 election, as he told Nigerians in Côte d'Ivoire that he wanted to be seen with some state governors so that their people may vote for him in future.

Also in his company is a national leader of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu; Governor Emmanuel Udom of Akwa Ibom State and Mohammed Abubakar of Bauchi State.

Upon arrival, the President was received at the Houphet Airport by Ivoiren President Alassane Ouattara.

This summit, which will be marked by the participation of more than 5300 delegates, will also see the participation of 83 heads of State and government representing 55 African countries and 28 European countries, as well as delegations of the invited countries, of AU Commission, EU Commission as well as worldwide, regional and sub-regional organizations.

Ministers of Youth and Sports, Solomon Dalung; Minister of Interior, Abdulrahman Dambazzau; and the National Security Adviser, Babagana Munguno; also welcomed the president at the airport.

A statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, said that he will again on December 2-3, 2017, join other Heads of State in Aqaba, Jordan, to review strategies in fighting terrorism, and reinforce joint security structures that will be more proactive in preventing attacks.

He said this while interacting with the Nigerian community in Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire.

Eighty three Heads of State representing 55 African countries and 28 European countries are slated to attend this high-level meeting.
