In a bid to strengthen collaboration between the two countries, Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari, his Polish counterpart, Andrzej Duda, on Tuesday, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on Agriculture.
This was disclosed by Duda while speaking to newsmen after a closed door meeting with Buhari.
Why Nigeria, Poland Signed MoU On Agriculture
He said the MoU became necessary in the light of Russia’s aggression in Ukraine and the consequent food crisis.
Describing Russia’s aggression as “unjustified” Duda noted that his country is supporting affected states and its partner countries to boost agricultural yield.
Speaking on the energy sector, the polish leader said Nigeria, being rich in gas, will ensure a steady increase of supply to his country and the rest of the European Union.
“I hope we’re going to see some fruit in this memorandum we have signed,” he said.
In his response, Buhari thanked the Polish government for opening its arms to Nigerian students whose studies were truncated by the Russia-Ukraine crisis; offering them opportunities for continued education.
The president noted that both countries have reached agreements to increase collaboration in agriculture, energy and defense.
Meanwhile, Kanyi Daily had reported that Nigeria and the Republic of Niger signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for petroleum products transportation and storage.
