The purpose of Buhari’s trip to Turkey was to participate in the 3rd Turkey-Africa Partnership Summit with the theme, ‘Enhanced Partnership for Common Development and Prosperity’.

While in Turkey, the President said that as part of sustained efforts at keeping Nigerians safer, the country would partner the Republic of Turkey in dealing with the current security challenges facing the nation.

This was on Friday at a bilateral meeting with his Turkish counterpart, Recep Erdogan, shortly before the commencement of the summit.

He said Turkey had practical experience dealing with challenges over the years and Nigeria stood to gain from that.

On Saturday, the President called on the Turkey-Africa Partnership Summit to provide concrete support to defeat terrorism and insurgency in Africa.

He expressed delight that the summit had given due consideration to the issue of terrorism, while also focusing on development and infrastructure in Africa.

Buhari returned on the 30-day deadline within which he is expected to assent or withhold his approval to the Electoral Act Amendment Bill, which was transmitted to him on November 19, 2021, after both chambers of the National Assembly had passed it.

Amid heightened anxiety over the decision of Buhari on the bill, the Presidency said on Saturday that Buhari would make his decision known soon.
