President Muhammadu Buhari has on Thursday departed Abuja for Istanbul, Turkey, to attend the third Turkey-Africa Partnership Summit.
This was made known to the public by Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, in a statement released on Thursday.
According to the organizers, the conference titled ‘Enhanced Partnership for Common Development and Prosperity,’ will examine African-Turkish collaboration since the last summit in 2014.
“The third Turkey-Africa Partnership Summit follows President Erdogan’s recent State Visit to Nigeria, during which many agreements in the domains of energy, defense industry, mining, and hydrocarbons were made to deepen existing bilateral connections,” Shehu added.
He explained Buhari is expected back in Abuja on Sunday, December 19.
