Kenya president to visit Nigeria May 4
Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta will pay a state visit to Nigeria from May 4 to May 6 to finalise bilateral agreements earlier made between both countries.
Kenya’s High Commissioner to Nigeria, Amb. Tom Amolo, said this in an interview yesterday.
Amolo said that the visit was in return to President Goodluck Jonathan’s visit in September 2013. “In July 2013, President Uhuru Kenyatta came to Abuja for `the Abuja Plus 12’. During that session they signed agreements including a Joint Commission of Cooperation Agreement.
“When President Jonathan came to Kenya, he invited President Uhuru Kenyetta to come to Nigeria for a state visit.
“They picked on the dates 4th to 6th of May in order to enable President Kenyatta to mesh with the World Economic Forum, Abuja.
“It is important for us because this visit occurs just after Nigeria has been recognised as the largest economy in Africa.”
The envoy said Kenyatta would be accompanied by eight ministers and 120 businessmen who would also be participating in the World Economic Forum. (NAN)
