Legit.ng gathers that the visit was confirmed by Garba Shehu, the presidential spokesman, who said: “Yes, we are expecting the emir.”

During his 2016 visit to the oil-producing state, Buhari had emphasized the need for OPEC and non-OPEC member countries to cooperate and find a common ground to stabilise the price of crude oil.
