In his remarks, Muhtar commended Nigeria for signing the African Continental Free Trade Area Agreement.

While congratulating President Buhari on a successful outing at the AU Summit, the IDB Vice President pledged the Bank’s continued support to development efforts in the country

He said the President of the IDB would like to visit Nigeria to commission the Bank’s new office, adding that ”Nigeria is a regional hub for the Islamic Development Bank Group”.
