In order to deal with the challenge of food security in Nigeria and throughout Africa, the Federal Government signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Poland.
When President Muhammadu Buhari hosted Polish President Andrzej Duda on Tuesday as part of a state visit, the two nations signed the agreement.
The Memorandum of Cooperation aims to improve agricultural productivity in Nigeria.
The Polish president said that while he had discussions with President Buhari about ten important topics, the issues of food and energy security came up most frequently. This was revealed during his visit to the State House in Abuja.
In order to alleviate the food crisis and ensure energy security, he pledged that Poland would improve its economic ties with Nigeria.
According to President Duda, this strategic conversation is crucial for the future of the two UN-member countries.
In a similar vein, President Buhari and the head of state of Poland spoke about supplying both oil and liquefied natural gas (LNG) to Poland and the European Union.
President Duda acknowledged Nigeria’s abundance of these natural resources and stated that LNG supplies from Nigeria to Poland had already taken place.
He suggested that his nation wanted to enhance supply from Nigeria to Poland, further solidifying the two nations’ already strong economic ties.
