PMB signs MoU on agriculture with Poland’s Andrzej Duda

President Muhammadu Buhari, and the President of the Republic of Poland, Andrzej Sebastian Duda, have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on Agriculture to strengthen collaboration between both countries in the sector.

Duda disclosed this while briefing journalists at the front porch of the Presidential Villa, Abuja, shortly after a closed-door session with Buhari.

According to him, the MoU became necessary in light of Russia’s aggression in Ukraine and the consequent food crisis.

Describing Russia’s aggression as “unjustified”, Duda noted that his country is supporting affected states and its partner countries to boost agricultural yield.

In the energy dimension, he noted that Nigeria, being rich in gas, will ensure a steady increase of supply to Poland and the rest of the European Union (EU).

“I hope we’re going to see some fruit in this memorandum we have signed,” he said.

On his part, Buhari thanked the Polish Government for opening its arms to Nigerian students whose studies were truncated by the Russia-Ukraine crisis; offering them opportunities for continued education.

He noted that both countries have reached agreements to increase collaboration in agriculture, energy and defence.

After the briefing, Buhari and his host proceeded to the State House Banquet Hall for lunch.
