The Presidency has denied a report by Sahara Reporters on Sunday, September 3, which claimed President Muhammadu Buhari will leave Abuja on Monday, September 4, 2017 for a trip to Washington, DC.

The online news platform had said in its report that the trip from Nigeria to the US is reportedly at the invitation of President Donald Trump.

But President Buhari's personal assistant on social media, Lauretta Onochie in a tweet said the report was totally untrue.

Earlier, Nigerian Eye reported that online news platform, Sahara Reporters, said a Nigerian presidency source stated that Trump extended the invitation last February, shortly after his inauguration.
The media house also reports that Buhari is scheduled to leave his hometown, Daura, by helicopter at 9:15 am on Monday, September 4, for Katsina airport.
From the airport, he will fly out at 10 am aboard a presidential jet to Washington, DC.
