(Ecofin Agency) - Nigerian Senate President, Bukola Saraki, has announced plans by the National Assembly to put a legal framework expected to actualize the bilateral agreements between Nigeria and Morocco, in place. This he assured during a meeting with the President of the Morrocan House of Councillors, Abdelhakim Benchamach, and the President of Moroccan House of Representatives, Habib El-Malki, last weekend.

Let’s recall that Nigeria signed several bilateral agreements with Morocco during the recent state visit by the King of Morocco to the country. These agreements were signed in the areas of agriculture, energy and gas as well as the trans-African gas pipeline project. Those agreements, particularly the trans-African gas pipeline, if actualized, will be a big victory and catalyst of development not only for the two countries but for the entire African continent. As legislators, we have a great role to play in supporting this initiative of our leaders in providing a legal framework for the actualization of those agreements,’’ Saraki said.

He further explained that the National Assembly is determined to introduce the legislation for the speedy take-off and implementation of the agreements which are expected to benefit the nation’s economy and strengthen cooperation with other African countries.
