Barring any last minute change, World heavyweight champion, Anthony Joshua, will visit Nigeria in August.
The United Kingdom, UK, based Nigerian boxer will be visiting Nigeria on a three-day tour during which he would pay a courtesy call on the Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo in Abuja and the governors of Lagos and Ogun states respectively.
Bukhari said Joshua would also attend a charity boxing match, Inspire Nigeria, 2017 at the Eko Hotel and the Transcorp Hilton Hotel, Abuja.
According to Bukhari, the Inspire Nigeria 2017 is a platform for Joshua to encourage Nigerian youths that their dreams and aspirations are achievable and that there is hope for them.
He said, “This event is part of his (Joshua’s) social corporate responsibility and duty to give back to Nigeria, where he is the son of the soil.
“Part of the tour will be to visit the Presidency, some state governors, as well as pay his respect to royal fathers.
“I have secured the endorsement and support of several notable people in Nigeria and I’m very positive that this event will be, by far, the biggest event in Nigeria in a very long time.”
