President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday said Nigeria will continue to strengthen its economic cooperation with the Republic of Algeria in various areas.
According to a statement issued by Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, Buhari stated this while receiving the Algerian Foreign Affairs Minister, and Special Envoy of the Algerian President, Sabri Boukadoum, in the Aso Rock Presidential Villa in Abuja.
He said the Trans-Sahara road, international gas pipelines, and other areas of economic cooperation would be given adequate attention for the good of the people of the two countries.
Buhari also emphasized the need for peace, tranquility and security in African countries, saying development and growth would depend a lot on how peaceful and secure the continent is.
He said: “Unless you secure your environment, you can’t manage it well. We should all secure our countries, because if we don’t, what do we then bequeath to the next generation? We can’t grow or develop in an insecure environment.”
