PRESIDENT Muhammadu Buhari yesterday in Kigali, Rwanda, praised the strength of the diplomatic bond existing between Nigeria and Jamaica.
President Buhari spoke during a meeting with Jamaican Prime Minister, Andrew Holness, on the sidelines of the 26th edition of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM), holding in Kigali.
According to a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, the President said: “Our relationship dates back in time, to generations ago. Thank you for strengthening it, particularly on the economic and political fronts.”
Holness said Nigeria had been very supportive of Jamaica, with the two countries having commercial agreements in place.
“The maiden flight from Lagos to Jamaica about two years ago was well received. We equally have relationships in the creative industry, sports and finance,” the Jamaican PM said.
Referring to a recent opinion article written by President Buhari, and published in international newspapers, Holness said he agreed that the Commonwealth could be more than just a club of friends who have affinity with the United Kingdom, “and become an economic powerhouse. All the elements are there; common language, large market, and many others. It can become a serious economic force.”
