President Buhari will then dash back to Abuja on February 21 for a 24-hour stopover before traveling to Riyadh in Saudi Arabia on Monday, February 22.

On Tuesday, February 23, the Nigerian president will fly from Riyadh to Madinah, while on Wednesday, February 24, he is scheduled to travel by road from Madinah to Makkah.

It is gathered that President Buhari is scheduled to travel from Jeddah to Doha, Qatar before returning to Abuja on Saturday, February 27.

Meanwhile, the presidency has reacted to the insinuation that President Buhari’s frequent oversea trips are mere jamborees.

Garba Shehu, the senior special assistant to Buhari on media and publicity, recently told reporters at the State House that the foreign trips were necessitated by the president's desire to block and recover funds looted out of Nigeria.
