The Nigerian President has been junketing across the world in the last six months.
In September 2021, Buhari travelled to New York, United States, to participate in the 76th Session of the United Nations General Assembly.
On October 3, he visited Ethiopia to attend the inauguration of the country’s Prime Minister, Abiy Ahmed, for a second five-year term in office.
He was also in Saudi Arabia on October 24 for an investment conference organised by the Future Investment Initiative Institute and lesser Hajj in Madinah and Makkah.
Two days after returning to Nigeria from Saudi Arabia, Buhari left the country for Glasgow, Scotland, to participate in the 26th Conference of Parties (COP26) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
The President, however, on November 2, 2021, secretly abandoned the conference and travelled to London for a medical checkup.
On Tuesday, November 9, Buhari departed London for Paris, France.
On November 13, it was also reported that Buhari in endless junketing was pictured leaving the French capital with some of his aides and making his way to the 5N-FGW (Gulfstream Aerospace) aircraft.
