Harry and Meghan to visit Nigeria in May

Duke of Sussex, Prince Harry, alongside his wife, the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan, are set to visit Nigeria in May.

This was announced in a communique signed by the Director of Defence Information at the Defence Headquarters, Brig.-Gen. Tukur Gusau, on Sunday.

According to Gusau, during their visit, the couple will be meeting with service members and will be hosted to an array of cultural activities.

Harry founded the Invictus Games, an international multi-sporting event which offers recovery pathway for international wounded, injured and sick servicemen and women.

It also gives soldiers awareness and recognition in society to support their path in rehabilitation.

The Invictus Games has about 500 participants at the last outing and 21 nations in attendance, including Nigeria, which made a headway with gold and bronze at its first outing last year.

The visit is to consolidate Nigeria’s stronghold at the Games and the possibility of hosting the event.
