The federal government of Nigeria has on Tuesday signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on Agriculture with the Government of Poland.
The polish president, Andrzej Duda, made this known at the front porch of the presidential villa, Abuja, Nigeria while addressing newsmen after a closed door meeting with the Nigerian president, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.).
According to Duda, the Memorandum of Understanding on Agriculture was pertinent as it will strengthen collaboration between both countries in the sector.
He said, the MoU becomes necessary in the light of Russia’s “unjustified” aggression in Ukraine and the consequent food crisis which has rocked most countries of the world.
He highlighted his countrys commitment to supporting affected states and its partner countries to boost agricultural yield.
speaking on energy, Duda said that Nigeria, being rich in gas, will ensure a steady increase of supply to Poland and the rest of the European Union.
“I hope we’re going to see some fruit in this memorandum we have signed,” he said.
Also speaking, Nigeria president, Mohammadu Buhari expressed his gratitude to the Polish Government for its magnanimity shown to Nigerian students whose studies were truncated by the Russia-Ukraine crisis by offering them opportunities for continued education.
He also stated that both countries have reached agreements to increase collaboration in agriculture, energy and defense.
