Washington, DC slated for today Monday, September 4, 2017 according to
official Presidential media
Saharareporters had exclusively
reported that Mr. Buhari’s trip to the US was at the invitation of
President Donald Trump, with a Nigerian Presidency source telling our
correspondent that Mr. Trump extended the invitation last February,
shortly after his inauguration.
An itinerary seen by
SaharaReporters had stated Mr. Buhari was scheduled to leave his
hometown, Daura, by helicopter at 9:15 am on Monday for Katsina airport.
From the airport, he was then to fly out at 10 am aboard a presidential
jet to Washington, DC.
Several hours after Saharareporters broke the story, media aides
began denying the report on twitter even as our sources insisted they
were on standby for the trip.
Later in the day, the minister of Information, Lai Mohammed issued a
statement saying that the informed was circulated through a parody
twitter account using his name.
