Buhari Cancels Rwanda Trip

President Muhammadu Buhari has cancelled a trip to Rwanda for the extraordinary meeting of African Union heads of state and government.

The Cable reports that no reason was given for the President’s decision to cancel the meeting, which is scheduled for Wednesday in Kigali.

According to the online newspaper, a team, comprising protocol staff, security officers and journalists, who were preparing to take off, were asked to return from Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos.

Mr Buhari was expected to sign the framework agreement for establishing the Continental Free Trade Area (CFTA) at the meeting.

Recall that during the weekly Federal Executive Council meeting on Wednesday, the council agreed to Nigeria signing the agreement.

The CFTA is part of the Implementation of the African Union Agenda 2063: “the vision for an integrated, prosperous and peaceful Africa”.
