President of Guinea, Prof. Alpha Conde was on Saturday, August 10th treated to a warm welcome by President Buhari and his Daura community in Katsina State.
According to a statement by Garba Shehu, the Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to the president, President Conde is in Daura for Eid El-Kabir celebrations. He said the visiting Conde would attend the Eid prayers with Buhari on Sunday and be treated to the traditional Durbar display at the palace of the Emir of Daura, Dr. Faruk Umar Faruk.
Shehu added that the Guinean president would also be conferred with a traditional title by the Daura Emirate. Conde, who was earlier received by the Gov.

Shehu said Conde’s visit would provide an opportunity to reinforce the strong relationship between the two leaders and both nations, and for them to engage in discussions on bilateral and global matters. ”It will also provide an opportunity for the visiting president to share in the rich history of Daura, which is the linchpin of Hausa society, ethnically,” he added.
