-Envoy Wants Tambuwal, Sultan To Meet With King
Sokoto government has expressed readiness to collaborate with the Kingdom of Morocco in the development of solar energy and fertilizer management for the benefit of its citizens.
Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal stated this after a meeting with the Moroccan Ambassador to Nigeria, Mr. Mosidfa Bouh, in Abuja.
He said Morocco has distinguished itself in some critical sectors as such relationship between the two states will be of utmost importance to the two parties.
The Governor added: “We discussed a number of issues which we hope to concretize in follow up discussions. We sought closer working relationship between our two states especially in areas like solar energy, leather works, agriculture (irrigation management), educational and cultural integration as well as fertilizer management.
“In terms of fertilizer, we informed the Ambassador that Sokoto has large deposit of primary natural substances needed for making fertilizer and we need to explore the substances to enhance revenue generation and create employment opportunities for the people,” Tambuwal said, according to a statement issued Monday by his spokesman, Malam Imam Imam.
In his remarks, the Ambassador said his country has long standing relationship with Sokoto Caliphate in the areas of religion, education and culture.
While expressing delight at the meeting, the envoy extended an invitation to Tambuwal and Sultan of Sokoto, Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar to visit Morocco for a meeting with King Mohammed VI to further explore issues of mutual benefit between the two entities.
