Organisation for Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) Secretary General, Mohammad Sanusi Barkindo, has visited Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari in London at the residence of the Nigerian High Commissioner – Abuja House.

A statement from OPEC said the Secretary General noted that “President Buhari has made a remarkable recovery. He was in pretty good shape, full of humour.”

The two reviewed current oil market conditions and the implementation of the OPEC-non-OPEC ‘Declaration of Cooperation’.

Buhari reportedly expressed his satisfaction with the steady progress being made by all participating countries in the ‘Declaration of Cooperation’, and urged them to remain focused and resolute.

He also commended the Secretary General for the landmark decisions taken in both 2016 and 2017 and for the significant turnaround in OPEC since he assumed office in August of last year.

The President said has been following events within OPEC and the oil market with keen interest.

He was once Minister of Petroleum for Nigeria and had represented Nigeria in OPEC for several years.

Over the past few weeks and months, he has been visited by numerous Nigerian officials.
