Mallam Garba Shehu, the Presidential Spokesman, in statement issued on Monday said Buhari, who would be the Special Guest of Honour at the event, will join other world leaders and organisations to rejoice with the people of Liberia at the event.

Liberia’s 175th independence anniversary discussion is themed, “Fostering Unity, Protecting Our Peace for Development and Prosperity.”

Recall that Nigeria played a leading role in the stabilisation of the West African nation in the early 90s, leading to the establishment of democratic rule and has continued to assist the country in many ways especially through the Technical Aids Corps scheme.

In 2019, Buhari was conferred with the highest national honour in the country, the Grand Cordon in the Most Venerable Order of Knighthood of the Pioneers of the Republic of Liberia, in recognition of Nigeria’s continued support towards the development of the country.

The President, who would be accompanied on the trip by the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama and Director-General, National Intelligence Agency (NIA), Ambassador Ahmed Rufai Abubakar.
