Buhari Heads To Morocco On Sunday
While debate continues over the recent award of GCFR to late politician and business mogul, Moshood Abiola, Nigeria president, Muhammadu Buhari will be traveling to Morocco on a two-day working visit.
Buhari will jet out on Sunday, June 10, 2018, and is expected back on Tuesday.
The visit, which is at the invitation of His Royal Majesty, King Mohammed VI, will see the two leaders discuss socio-economic matters affecting their countries, following prior engagements in December 2016, during the official visit of His Majesty to Nigeria.
According to Buhari spokesperson, Garba Shehu, while in Rabat, “discussions will focus on strengthening existing agreements on the fertilizer industry, education cooperation, the Nigeria-Morocco Gas Pipeline project and establishing a basic chemical platform to harness Nigeria’s vast natural gas resources and support Morocco’s diammonium phosphate industry.”
He recalled that “following the signing of a collaboration agreement between Nigeria and Morocco in December 2016 to revive the abandoned Nigerian fertilizer blending plants, 14 plants have been revitalized so far under the Presidential Fertilizer Initiative (PFI), with a total capacity of 2.3 million MT of NPK fertilizers.”
The President will not go alone, as he will be accompanied by Governor Dave Umahi of Ebonyi State, Governor Abubakar Badaru of Jigawa State and other senior government officials.
