Buhari travels to Germany with Okorocha and Shettima

by on October 13, 2016
President Muham­madu Buhari leaves Abuja tomorrow for a three-day official visit to Berlin, Germany.
While in Berlin, Buhari will confer with Federal Chancellor Angela Merkel on issues of shared inter­ests between Nigeria and Germany, the Presidency said in a statement.
The bilateral talks will include further coopera­tion on security, the hu­manitarian situation of In­ternally Displaced Persons (IDPs) and rehabilitation of the North-East, as well as trade and economic relations between both countries.
Thereafter, the Presi­dent, who will be ac­companied by Governors Kashim Shettima of Borno State and Rochas Okoro­cha of Imo State as well as representatives of the Na­tional Assembly, will meet with German Federal President, Joachim Gauck.
He will also participate in a Business Forum in Berlin with leading Ger­man companies already active in Nigeria and other prospective investors in furtherance of the admin­istration’s objective to at­tract more foreign invest­ment and create economic opportunities in Nigeria.
Before returning to Abuja, the President is ex­pected to meet with repre­sentatives of the Nigerian community in Germany.
Shortly after his inau­guration on May 29, 2015, President Buhari, on the invitation of Chancellor Merkel, attended the G7 summit in Elmau, Germa­ny – the trip was his first to a non-African country after his assumption of of­fice.
From February 8 to 12 this year, President Gauck, accompanied by a delega­tion of German business community, was on an official visit to Nigeria, where they had fruitful discussions on trade and investments with repre­sentatives of government and the private sector in Abuja and Lagos.
