Buhari, in a meeting with the new UAE president, also expressed hope that the two countries will continue to actively champion a vision of sustainable security, strengthen counter-terrorism cooperation, facilitate trade and investment, and promote prosperity and development.

Buhari was accompanied on the trip by Zubairu Dada, minister of state for foreign affairs; Isa Pantami, minister of communications and digital economy; Mohammed Bello, minister of the federal capital territory (FCT); and Hadi Sirika, minister of aviation.


Other members of his delegation were Mohammed Monguno, national security adviser; and Ahmed Abubakar, director-general, national intelligence agency.
