Nigeria and Morocco are set to sign fifteen bilateral agreements.

The King of Morocco, King Mohammed VI, who is on three-day visit to Nigeria, was received by President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The two leaders are to witness the signing of the agreements.

Speaking with State House correspondents, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyema said that the agreements would touch on Trades, oil and other sectors.

On what Nigeria stands to gain from the Morocco King’s visit, he said: “Hopefully in the short and medium terms it could run into billions. We are looking at a trans-Africa gas pipeline that is going to run along the coast of West Africa from Nigeria to Morocco giving us the potential to supply gas to Europe directly. We are talking billions of dollars there.

“And also production of fertilizer, Morocco is a big … So establishing production plant here to produce fertilizer and supply to West Africa sub region is also going to run into billions of dollars.

“The potential is enormous. The visit is very important, it is a win-win visit, win for Morocco and win for Nigeria,” he stated.
