Story from Matthew ELOYI

President Muhammadu Buhari has stated that Saudi Arabia has been kind to Nigeria as he played host to the Saudi Arabian Minister of Foreign Affairs on Tuesday at State House, Abuja.

According to a statement by Femi Adesina, Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, President Buhari, while receiving Prince Faisal Bin Farhan Al-Saud, said with Nigeria’s large population and infrastructural deficit, the country needed all the revenue she could get from oil, a mainstay of the economy, “and Saudi Arabia has been very kind to us, making a sacrifice by reducing production to accommodate us a number of times.”

President Buhari noted that the relationship between the two countries is very strong, “and dates back in time, both at the personal and national levels.”

“It is long and steadfast,” the President added.

Prince Al-Saud brought greetings from King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud, saying the Kingdom appreciates the relationship with Nigeria, “which dates back 61 years, and we want to strengthen it even further.”
