JUST IN: Prince Charles, Princess Camilla Arrive Nigeria
The Prince of Wales, Charles and his wife, Princess Camilla have arrived Nigeria.
They touched down at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, at about 1:34pm.
During his visit, Prince Charles would engage in peace-building activities, including addressing the farmers-herders clashes.
The British High Commissioner to Nigeria, Mr Paul Arkwright had disclosed that the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall are also expected to have an audience with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa.
“The Prince of Wales will be looking at the causes, talking to people who are working in this area and together, seeing if we can find solutions and move on.
“Prince Charles has not been here since the past 12 years. 2006 was the last time he was here and the Duchess of Cornwall, has never been to Nigeria. So it is about strengthening ties, particularly people-to-people ties.
“We want to ensure that through the Commonwealth, which is another theme of the prince’s visit, we develop links to develop relationships whether in trade, environment or in education, all of which are important to the future of the Commonwealth and to the future of Nigeria,” Arkwright had said.
