State House Press Release – President Muhammadu Buhari said Wednesday in Abuja that Nigeria and Sao Tome & Principe must sit down soon to review
the activities of their Joint Development Authority with a view to making it more efficient and productive.
Speaking at a meeting with the Prime Minister of Sao Tome & Principe, Patrice Emery Trovoada, President Buhari said that the two countries also need to intensify their collaborative efforts with others to curtail piracy and insecurity in the Gulf of Guinea.
The President said that with their shared strategic interest in the security of the Gulf of Guinea, Nigeria and Sao Tome & Principe must work harder with other stakeholders to keep it safe.
President Buhari noted that pirates who take advantage of the present low level of security in the gulf were causing incalculable damage to the economies of countries in the region.
He therefore assured the visiting Prime Minister that Nigeria will do all within its powers to enhance security in the Gulf.
The Prime Minister told President Buhari that his country will welcome a meeting next year to review the management of the Joint Development Authority.
SSA to the President
