President Muhammadu Buhari will depart Abuja for South Africa on Saturday to attend the 25th African Union Summit in Johannesburg.

President Buhari is scheduled to  undertake his first continental assignment since taking office by chairing  a meeting of the  Peace and Security Committee of the African Union during the summit.

A statement signed by the Special Adviser to  the President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, Friday, said the President is also expected to hold bilateral talks with other African leaders on the sidelines of the summit  to consolidate his ongoing drive to secure Nigeria and neighbouring countries from Boko Haram.

President Buhari, according to the statement, is due back in Abuja on Tuesday at the conclusion of the summit which will focus mainly  on continental peace and security.
