Buhari Returns To Nigeria After 4-Day Working Visit To Turkey

President Muhammadu Buhari on Sunday afternoon returned to Abuja, Nigeria after his four-day visit to Turkey.

Nigeria’s supreme leader had travelled to Turkey for a meeting of the D-8, a group of eight developing nations after presiding over Wednesday’s Federal Executive Council meeting.

While in Turkey, President Buhari was hosted by the Turkish President Recep Tayyeb Erdogan before the D-8.

In a statement on Sunday, Garba Shehu, the president’s spokesman, said Buhari’s objective during the visit focused on issues of security, anti-terrorism, agricultural and trade cooperation.

Other issues discussed were education, health, transport, energy sector cooperation and increased private sector participation.

According to him, Buhari’s visit to Turkey achieved “quite a lot” on the said objectives.

“The meetings have also helped to enhance momentum in ties between Nigeria and the rest of the ‘D-8’ member-countries and the establishment of a positive working relationship, especially between Buhari and Erdogan.”

“Nigeria and Turkey has agreed to support each other in the fight against terrorism, human, drugs, and arms trafficking,” he said.
