President Muhammadu Buhari will leave Abuja on Tuesday for New Delhi to participate in the 3rd summit of the India-Africa Forum aimed at boosting socio-economic development in Africa and India.

Femi Adesina, special adviser to the president on media and publicity, disclosed this in a statement issued in Abuja on Sunday.

Adesina said Buhari, Prime Minister Narendra Modi of India and other participating heads of state, would deliberate on climate change, terrorism and issues of common concern to their countries.

“This year’s summit will enable the leaders to discuss additional measures aimed at boosting joint collaboration to accelerate the pace of socio-economic development in Africa and India,” the statement read.

“The summit, which follows the 2nd summit held in Addis Ababa in 2011, will enable the leaders to deliberate on further cooperation for the alleviation of poverty, and the eradication of hunger, disease and illiteracy.”

According to Adesina, before returning to Nigeria on October 30, Buhari will also meet with chief executive officers of Indian companies with existing or prospective interests in Nigeria before returning.

He said the Nigerian president would be accompanied by the governors of Kano and Delta states, as well as Babagana Monguno, the national security adviser.

Permanent secretaries in the ministries of defence, power, communications technology, agriculture, foreign affairs and industry, trade and investment, will also make the trip.
