Shehu revealed that the president was invited to the G7 summit before he was sworn into office.

He added that Buhari would not be participating in the main meetings, since Nigeria is not a member of the G7 group.

“He is in a group of seven other Heads of State who were called in as guests. He will equally be holding key side meetings with some of the seven Heads of State who will be convened at the summit.

“The international community is obviously acknowledging Nigeria’s significant role in global affairs, especially with the recent change in government,” the spokesman concluded.
