President Muhammadu Buhari has returned to the country after participating in the Peace Forum held in Paris, France.

The event organised by the French Government and a number of Non-Governmental Organisations was held between November 11 and 13, 2018.

The president joined other world leaders to celebrate the centenary anniversary of the Armistice signed on November 11, 1918, between the Allied Forces and Germany in the Forest of Compiegne in France to end the First World War.

The president seized the opportunity of the event to meet Nigerians living in France.

Various issues bordering on education, elections and socio-economic development of the country were discussed.

The Peace Forum is based on the “simple idea that international cooperation is key to tackling global challenges and ensuring durable peace.”

Buhari was accompanied on the trip by Governors Aminu Masari of Katsina State; Willie Obiano of Anambra and Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State.

Also on the trip were the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama; the Attorney-General and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami; the National Security Adviser, Maj-Gen. Babagana Monguno (rtd); and the Director-General, National Intelligence Agency, Ahmed Abubakar.
