Buhari arrived at the country via the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport Abuja on Sunday afternoon after a four-day official trip to Dubai, the United Arab Emirates.
The President, who left the shores of the country on Wednesday, arrived in the Arab nation on Thursday where he met with prospective investors.

The expo will provide an opportunity for the Nigerian delegation to highlight significant strides in the economy in the last six years as a basis for making the country an important destination for foreign direct investment.
On Saturday, the Nigerian leader was the special guest of honour at the special trade and investment forum.
