, NAIROBI, Kenya, Jan 28 – The visiting Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari and his host president Uhuru Kenyatta are Thursday morning expected to meet the business community in Nairobi to tighten business ties between the two countries.
The business forum that will take place at the Intercontinental Hotel is organized by the Kenya National Chamber of Commerce.
In 2013 during former Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan visit to Kenya seven agreements aimed at boost their bilateral and trade ties were penned.
The agreements covered tourism, trade and investment, oil and gas, visa exemption for diplomatic passport holders, conclusion of agreements on double taxation, agriculture, livestock and fisheries and twinning of cities.
Buhari’s visit is likely to play a key role in checking the implementation progress of these agreements and other MOUs signed.
Buhari had on Wednesday witnessed a memorial for Kenya Defence Forces fallen heroes who were killed by the Al Shabaab militia in Somalia.
