President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari is scheduled to fly out of the country on a two-day working visit to the Kingdom of Morocco.
This was made known in a statement by his media aide, Garba Shehu. The visit is at the invitation of His Royal Majesty, King Mohammed VI, and will see the two leaders discuss socio-economic matters affecting their countries.
This recent trip of President Buhari follows prior engagements in December 2016, during the official visit of His Majesty of Morocco to Nigeria.
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.
The statement released by Garba Shehu read in parts;
“It is noteworthy 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 be accompanied on the trip by Governor Dave Umahi of Ebonyi State, Governor Abubakar Badaru of Jigawa State and other senior government officials.”
