    President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday met behind closed doors with visiting King Mohammed VI of Morocco at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

    The king who arrived the country on Thursday night was received by Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo at the Presidential Wing of the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja.

    He arrived the Presidential Villa on Friday about 1.30pm and was received by the President and some top government officials.

    A few minutes after he arrived, he and Buhari proceeded to the National Mosque, Abuja where they joined dignitaries like the President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki; Sultan of Sokoto, Sa’ad Abubakar III; and the Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II, for Jumat service.

    The two leaders later returned to the Presidential Villa for bilateral talks.
    The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyema, told State House correspondents that 15 bilateral agreements would be signed during the visit of the Moroccan king.

    He said the agreements would touch on trades, oil and other sectors.
    “The potential is enormous. The visit is very important, it is a win-win visit, win for Morocco and win for Nigeria,” the minister said.
