His media aide, Mr Femi Adesina, stated in Abuja on Monday that the summit was convened by President Nana Akuffo-Ado of Ghana.
According to Adesina, the president is scheduled to participate and deliver remarks at the high-level discussion on strategies for strengthening peace and security in the fight against maritime-related crimes in the gulf.
Buhari would be accompanied by the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr Geoffrey Onyeama, the National Security Adviser, retired Maj.-Gen Babagana Monguno, and the Director-General, National Intelligence Agency, Amb. Ahmed Abubakar.
“As the immediate past Chair of the Assembly, President Buhari had championed collective efforts by member-states of the Economic Community of Central African States, the ECOWAS, the GGC and their partners to address and prevent piracy.
“In June, 2019, Nigeria’s National Assembly passed the Suppression of Piracy and Other Maritime Offences Act, 2019, which aims to prevent and suppress piracy, armed robbery and other unlawful acts against ships,’’ Adesina noted.
