President Muhammadu Buhari has returned to Nigeria after his four-day visit to Turkey.
Buhari travelled to Turkey on Wednesday for a meeting of the D-8, a group of eight developing nations.
While in Turkey, Buhari was hosted by the Turkish President Recep Tayyeb Erdogan before the D-8
A statement yesterday, by the president’s spokesman, Garba Shehu, 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.
Shehu said 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,” he said.
“Nigeria and Turkey has agreed to support each other in the fight against terrorism, human, drugs, and arms trafficking.”
