President Muhammadu Buhari will be represented today at the inauguration of a newly elected President of Burkina Faso, Mr. Roch Marc Christian Kaboré, by Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo (SAN).
A statement issued by the Senior Special Assistant to the Vice President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Laolu Akande confirmed the development.
Kaboré emerged power last month after general elections in the West African nation.
Earlier in September this year, Buhari summoned and presided over an extra-ordinary session of ECOWAS leaders in Abuja following a military coup that took place that month in Burkina Faso.
The meeting called for the restoration of civil rule and supported the progress of the political transition. This culminated in the November presidential and parliamentary elections in the country.
The vice-president represented Buhari at the follow-up meeting of select ECOWAS leaders in the nation’s capital city Ouagadougou. That meeting contributed to the termination of the military coup and restoration of Burkina Faso’s democratic transition.
