Heir to the British throne, Prince Charles, and his wife, Camilla, have arrived Nigeria as part of their tour of West Africa.
This was contained in a tweet by the Clarence House, the official Twitter handle of the British Royals, @ClarenceHouse.
The tweet reads, “Their Royal Highnesses have arrived in Nigeria as they continue their Royal Tour of West Africa.”
Clarence House added that the royals had the National Anthem played for them, while His Royal Highness, Prince Charles, inspected the Guard.
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.
