President Muhammadu Buhari will be hosting President Recep Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey, who is on a two-day official visit to Nigeria starting from October 19.
A statement by Garba Shehu, Mr Buhari’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, said Mr Erdogan is expected to arrive from Angola and depart for Togo at the end of his visit in company of his wife, Emine Erdogan.
“In the course of the visit, the leaders of the two countries are expected to consider about two dozen Bilateral Agreements and Memoranda of Understanding (MOUs) and they will authorize the signing of those on which there is a concurrence.
“In addition to the bilateral discussions, President Erdogan will hold a one-on-one meeting with President Buhari and he is expected to commission the Turkish Cultural Centre in Abuja,” Mr Shehu further disclosed.
He also said Mrs Erdogan will be accompanied by Aisha Buhari to commission the newly-renovated Government Secondary School, Wuse 11, done by Turkish aid organisation, the Turkish Cooperation and Coordinating Agency (TIKA).
“Nigeria considers Turkey a close partner and sees this visit as a milestone in our bilateral relations,” Mr Shehu said.
