President Muhammadu Buhari says Nigeria values ties with her longtime allies, and will continue to lubricate the relationships.
Mr Femi Adesina, the President’s spokesman in a statement, said Buhari stated this when he received the outgoing Ambassadors of Spain, and The State of Qatar, in separate audiences on Monday in Abuja.
President Buhari told the outgoing ambassador of Spain, Marcelino Ansorena that Spain would ever remain relevant in the developed world.
“Generation after generation, we have been together, and we will continue to build on the relationship,’’ he said.
The outgoing Ambassador commended Nigeria’s democracy, saying it has consolidated, “and will continue to grow.”
The Nigerian leader also told the outgoing Ambassador of The State of Qatar, Abdulaziz Al-Muhanadi that relations between Nigeria and Qatar had been strong and credible, particularly as oil producing nations.
Al-Muhanadi thanked the President for the support extended to him, to make his tour of duty successful. (NAN)
