The Prince Charles and his wife, the Duchess of Cornwall, Camilla, have arrived Nigeria on a three-day visit.
The High Commission in Abuja on Wednesday last week, stated that the royal visit will celebrate UK’s dynamic, forward-looking partnerships with the three Commonwealth nations on a range of shared priorities.
“During the visit, the Royal Highnesses will meet some of Nigeria’s dynamic youths as well as traditional leaders, the business community, the armed forces, and people from the arts, fashion and charitable sectors,” the statement signed by UK Mission Senior Communications Officer, Tinu Adelegan, noted.
The visit, she said, would highlight key themes in the relationship between UK and Nigeria, including the importance of Commonwealth ties; youth opportunity; business and entrepreneurship; educating women and girls; literacy, defence co-operation, and religious and cultural diversity and opportunities for closer cooperation between the Nigerian and UK artists in music, art, cinema, and fashion.
Some of Nigeria’s notable monarchs on Tuesday visited Prince Charles in Abuja, who arrived in Nigeria on the third leg of his West African tour. The Ooni of Ife, Oba Enitan Ogunwusi’s arrival was preceded by a forerunner, who was declaring that the monarch has arrived.
The Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II, showed up for the visit in one of his vintage vehicles with an elaborate umbrella.
