President Muhammadu Buhari has urged the Emir of Qatar, His Highness Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani, to invest in Nigeria’s refineries, pipelines, power sector, aviation, agriculture, education.
He told the Emir that Nigeria is in need of his country’s expertise.
He stated this on Tuesday while receiving the Emir at State House, Abuja.
According to Channels Television, it was gathered that the two leaders also discussed on how to improve bilateral relations between both countries.
Buhari said; “We invite you to invest in our refineries, pipelines, power sector, aviation, agriculture, education, and many others so that you can have your management here to oversee the investment. We need your expertise.
“We need help with the recharge of Lake Chad, as it is not a project that the concerned countries can handle alone.
“Recharging the lake will bring back fishing, farming, animal husbandry, and the youths won’t be attracted by insurgency or illegal migration.
“We want Qatar to be involved because of the humanitarian nature of the endeavour.”
In response to President Buhari’s statement, Sheikh Hamad Al-Thani, said his country is willing to do a lot with Nigeria.
He also urged that the relationship between both countries be solidified.
“We share a lot of similarities in different areas. We need to enhance bilateral trade and economic cooperation.
We are willing to do a lot more with Nigeria, and will continue to work on investment opportunities of mutual benefit,” he added.
“The relationship between our countries is very good. We just have to build on it,” the emir said.
