President Muhammadu Buhari is on his way back to the country after a six-day trip to China where he participated in the Forum of China-Africa Cooperation (FOCAC), alongside over 50 other African leaders.
The Personal Assistant to the President on New Media, Mr Bashir Ahmed, revealed this via his Twitter handle.
According to him, the President’s aircraft departed the Beijing Capital International Airport on Thursday morning.
He also solicited the assistance of the Chinese government towards the construction of the Mambilla Hydropower Project in Taraba State.
“I told President Xi that the Mambilla Hydropower Plant is Nigeria’s equivalent of China’s Three Gorges Dam, and that I look forward to him joining me for the groundbreaking ceremony in the not-too-distant future,” President Buhari had said on his Twitter handle on Wednesday.
