Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan arrived in Abuja, Nigeria late Tuesday on a one-day official visit where he is expected to meet with his counterpart Muhammadu Buhari and other local officials.
Erdogan is on a four-nation tour of Africa that had seen him visit Cot D’Ivoire on Monday and Ghana on Tuesday. He will leave Abuja late Wednesday for a visit to Guinea on Thursday.
The Turkey-Nigeria trade volume hit $2.3 billion in 2014, according to the Nigerian Association of Chambers of Commerce, Industry, Mines, and Agriculture. The two have bilateral trade agreements, including one on economic, scientific, and technical cooperation inked in 1986 and an investment promotion and protection agreement signed in 2011.
Erdogan is accompanied by his spouse Emine Erdogan, over 150 Turkish businessmen, and many other Turkish bureaucrats.
