President Muhammadu Buhari, Wednesday, arrived in Gambia for the inauguration of President Adama Barrow.
He was received by the vice President Dr. Isatou Touray and Nigerian ambassador to Gambia Mr Muhammed Manu Kola at the Banjul International Airport.
Buhari, along with other ECOWAS leaders, played a leading role in the restoration of democratic rule in The Gambia in 2017, after former President Yahya Jammeh refused to surrender power after losing the election.
The president was accompanied by Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr Geoffrey Onyeama; National Security Adviser, Retired Maj.-Gen. Babagana Monguno; Director-General, National Intelligence Agency, Amb. Ahmed Rufai, and other top government officials.
The president is expected back in the country at the end of the inauguration ceremonies
