Tinubu signs seven bilateral agreements with Qatar

In an effort to increase business prospects between the two nations, President Bola Tinubu signed seven bilateral, multi-sectoral agreements with the government of Qatar on Sunday.

The Times stated that, Ajuri Ngelale, the president’s special adviser on media and publicity, revealed this in a statement.

According to Ngelale, seven agreements have been signed, including one on youth and sports cooperation, one on education cooperation, one regulating worker employment with the Qatari government, one establishing a joint business council between the Qatar Chamber of Commerce and Industry and the Nigerian Association of Chambers of Commerce, Industry, Mines, and Agriculture.

A representative for the countries added that “Historic agreements between them will create a mechanism to capitalize on the potential of reciprocal collaboration in important areas including youth empowerment, mining, tourism, education, business growth, and sports.”

President Tinubu informed his hosts at the signing event at the Qatar Presidential Palace that “Nigeria is ready to draw in investors by stressing the country’s recent changes that encourage innovation, investment returns, and diversity.”

President Tinubu’s investment drive is welcomed in Qatar, according to the Emir of the State of Qatar, His Highness Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani. He mentioned that “He visited Nigeria in 2019 because he thought the country was a vital and strategic ally both on its own and in the context of its role in regional affairs.”
