Mr.Buhari’s trip to the US is at the invitation of President Donald Trump.
According to sources, Mr. Buhari is scheduled to leave his hometown, Daura, by helicopter at 9:15 am on Monday for Katsina airport.
From the airport, he will fly out at 10am aboard a presidential jet to Washington, DC.
The earlier plan was apparently for Mr. Buhari to combine the official visit to the US with his participation at the UN General Assembly in New York from September 21 to 25, 2017.
There is some anxiety within Aso Rock that the trip may turn out to have a medical tone.
