President Muhammadu Buhari has assured Nigerians and the international community that his administration will honour all international trade agreements that will directly improve the living conditions of Nigerians.
Speaking in Abuja at an audience with the outgoing Ambassador of Turkey to Nigeria, Mr. Mustafa Pulat, President Buhari said that under his leadership, the Federal Government will give special attention to the implementation of such agreements, especially in the provision of infrastructure, good education and job opportunities.
Commending the Ambassador’s efforts to expand areas of bilateral cooperation between Nigeria and Turkey, President Buhari applauded the growth of trade between both countries in recent years.
“I am impressed with the improvement in our trade relations which coincided with the period you arrived in Nigeria.
“As we settle down into governance, we will look into other areas in which we can work together and directly help our people,” President Buhari assured Mr. Pulat.
The President also praised the outgoing Ambassador’s positive impact on education in Nigeria as reflected in the increased number of Turkish schools and universities in Nigeria.
Mr. Pulat told the President that during his two and half years in Abuja, he focused on ensuring better cultural, educational and trade relations between Nigeria and Turkey.
