He said the President will be accompanied by the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr Geoffrey Onyeama; National Security Adviser, Maj-Gen Babagana Monguno (retd.); Director-General, National Intelligence Agency, Ambassador Ahmed Rufai, and other top government officials.

Shehu said at the invitation of his host, the President will be the special guest of honour at the ceremonies to be attended by other African leaders at the Independence Stadium, Bakau.

He said President Buhari, along with other ECOWAS leaders, played a leading role in the restoration of democratic rule in The Gambia in 2017 after the former President, Yahya Jammeh, refused to surrender power after losing the election.

The presidential media aide said the President is expected back in the country at the end of the inauguration ceremonies.
