Nigeria and the Kingdom of Morocco have agreed to support efforts towards the realization of strategic development projects that will strengthen their economies and make life easy for their people.
President Muhammadu Buhari and King Muhammad V1 of Morocco took the decision yesterday during a telephone conversation.
The two leaders strengthened the positive and dynamic bilateral relations in all fields between their countries, when the King visited Nigeria in 2016, and President Buhari’s return visit in 2018.
President Buhari and King Muhammad expressed determination to carry out, as soon as possible, the Nigeria-Morocco Gas Pipeline and construction of a fertilizer production plant in Nigeria.
President Buhari, who spoke with the King from his country home in Daura, thanked the Moroccan leader for his support in the fight against terrorism and violent extremism.
In a statement, the Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, says President Buhari also expressed appreciation for the Kingdom’s support in education through scholarships and training.
