Buhari returns from 4-day working visit to Turkey


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.”
