Buhari in Morocco on two-day visit
President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday arrived in the Kingdom of Morocco on a two-day working visit.
The visit, on the invitation of His Royal Majesty, King Mohammed VI, will see the two leaders discuss socio-economic matters affecting their countries.
Their discussions are expected to focus on strengthening existing agreements on the fertilizer industry, education co-operation, the Nigeria-Morocco gas pipeline project and establishing a basic chemical platform to harness Nigeria’s vast natural gas resources and support Morocco’s phosphate industry.
Meanwhile, following the signing of a collaboration agreement between Nigeria and Morocco in December 2016 to revive the abandoned Nigerian fertiliser blending plants, 14 plants have been revitalised so far under the Presidential Fertiliser Initiative (PFI) with a total capacity of 2.3 million metric tonnes of NPK fertilisers.
