Daily Trust - - NEWS - By Isi­aka Wak­ili

Turk­ish Pres­i­dent, Re­cep Tayyip Er­do­gan, has fe­lic­i­tated with Mus­lims in Nige­ria on the oc­ca­sion of this year’s Eid-El-Fitr.

A state­ment by the Spe­cial Ad­viser to the Pres­i­dent Muham­madu Buhari on Me­dia and Pub­lic­ity, Mr Femi Adesina, said Er­do­gan did so in a tele­phone con­ver­sa­tion with Buhari yes­ter­day.

Adesina said Er­do­gan, whose coun­try re­cently suf­fered ter­ror at­tacks at the Atar­tuk air­port, re­joiced with Nige­ri­ans on the suc­cess­ful com­ple­tion of this year’s Ra­madan fast de­spite dis­trac­tions.

Pres­i­dent Muham­madu Buhari had last week in a let­ter writ­ten to the Turk­ish pres­i­dent, com­mis­er­ated with him and the en­tire peo­ple of Turkey on the bomb­ings at the Ataturk air­port in Turkey.

Buhari de­scribed the in­ci­dent as a hor­rific at­tack on their soil by evil forces who have noth­ing to do with Is­lam de­spite their warped be­liefs.
