PRESIDENT BUHARI REAFFIRMS NIGERIA’S SUPPORT FOR PEACE IN THE MIDDLE EAST

President Muhammadu Buhari Tuesday in Abuja pledged that Nigeria will continue to support all efforts aimed at the  peaceful resolution of the Middle East conflict.

Speaking at an audience with the outgoing Palestinian Ambassador to Nigeria, Dr Montaser Abuzaid, President Buhari reaffirmed Nigeria’s support for the Palestinian cause.   

Noting that  Nigeria recognized the State of Palestine 31 years ago, President Buhari assured Ambassador Abuzaid that his   administration will maintain and strengthen   bilateral ties with Palestine. 

The President wished the outgoing ambassador well in his future assignments. 

In his remarks, Abuzaid extended the goodwill of Palestinian President Mahmud Abbas to Nigeria and congratulated the President Buhari on his assumption of office after a peaceful transition. 

He appealed for more support from the Nigerian government for Palestinian companies interested in doing business in Nigeria, particularly in the area construction and provision of critical infrastructure.
