President Muhammadu Buhari will depart Abuja on Friday for Paris, France, to participate in the first edition of the Paris Peace Forum which opens on Sunday and ends on Tuesday.
Mr Femi Adesina, the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, made this known in a statement in Abuja on Friday.
The Peace Forum is organised by the French Government and a number of Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs).
The Forum is based on the “simple idea that international cooperation is key to tackling global challenges and ensuring durable peace.”
Adesina disclosed that the Nigerian President would join the United Nations Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres and other world leaders in discussing contributions towards global peace while underscoring the imperative of collective action.
