President Mohammadu Buhari on Thursday agreed to a Bilateral council establishment with the Prince of Saudi Arabia after acknowledging the invite from the Prince.

A statement by Garba Shehu, Buhari’s spokesman on Thursday, said meeting was initially scheduled to hold in the office of the Crown Prince but out of courtesy and respect for the Nigerian leader, Prince Salman insisted that he would meet with President Buhari in his hotel room at The Ritz Carlton, Riyadh.
“President Buhari and the Crown Prince agreed that the first assignment for the Council is to establish a legal and operational framework that will facilitate investments beneficial to both countries. The Council will be established in the next two months while meetings will be held twice every year.

“To ensure that relations between both countries remain active, it was also agreed that leaders of both countries, at the highest level, will meet at least once every year to review the progress of the joint council and ensure closer collaboration on issues of mutual interest,” Shehu said.
