By Adenike Lucas

Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari is to attend the 4th Africa-Arab Summit next week. 

The summit, which will be attended by Heads of State and Governments from Gulf and African countries, is expected to endorse the Malabo Declaration and Action Working Plan for 2017-2019 to promote trade and economic ties.

This year’s African-Arab Summit is scheduled to take place in Malabo, Equatorial Guinea, on November 23.

A statement from the Presidency said the President of Africa’s most populous country “will be expected to hold discussions with Arab leaders aimed to review agreements to strengthen partnerships that bolster agriculture and infrastructure development in Nigeria through long term concessionary loans and technological skills transfer.”
