Small Maji: Buhari leaves Abuja for Saudi Arabia

By Ismaila Chafe

On Thursday, President Muhammad Buhar left the presidential office of Namdia Zikiwe International Airport Abuja for Saudi Arabia.

A Nigerian news agency (NAN) reported that a presidential aircraft carrying members of the president and the bank took off from the airport around 11 am.

Those at the airport to bid "goodbye" to the president included his chief aide, Malam Abba Kyari. Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT). Deputy inspector for police, Muhammad Adam and other high-level government officials.

The NAN reports that the trip to the President's Holy Land was followed by the invitation of King Salman Bin Abdulaziz, king of Saudi Arabia King, and the administrators of the two holy mosques.

A statement issued by the President's Media and Ad-Senior Special Adjunct Malam Garba Shehu on Abuja on Wednesday confirmed that President Buhari will carry out Umrah (less pilgrimage) while in the kingdom.

In February 2016, President Buhari finally showed off Umrah in Saudi Arabia.

Umrah is an optional but recommended pilgrimage to Mecca, and can be made anytime. (NAN)
