President Muhammadu Buhari will on Sunday embark on a two-day working visit to the Kingdom of Morocco.

This was disclosed in a statement issued by Garba Shehu, the Senior Special Assistant, Media and Publicity to the President.

He said President Buhari will honour the invitation extended to him by the leader of Morroco, King Mohammed VI.

According to him, the two leaders would hold discussion on how to further strengthen the existing agreements on the fertilizer industry, education and other projects.

“In Rabat, discussions will focus on strengthening existing agreements on the fertilizer industry, education cooperation, the Nigeria-Morocco Gas Pipeline project and establishing a basic chemical platform to harness Nigeria’s vast natural gas resources and support Morocco’s diammonium phosphate industry,” the statement read.

“It is noteworthy that following the signing of a collaboration agreement between Nigeria and Morocco in December 2016 to revive the abandoned Nigerian fertilizer blending plants, 14 plants have been revitalized so far under the Presidential Fertilizer Initiative; with a total capacity of 2.3 million MT of NPK fertilizers.

“The president will be accompanied on the trip by governor Dave Umahi of Ebonyi state, governor Abubakar Badaru of Jigawa state and other senior government officials.”
