President Muhammadu Buhari has promised to sign the Africa Free Trade Agreement to facilitate growth in the continent in a way that job creation and local industries would be enhanced.
He made the promise after he held a closed door meeting with the visiting South African President, Cyril Ramaphosa, at the Presidential Villa Abuja.
The President fielded questions from newsmen at the end of the bi-lateral meeting where both economic giants in the continent also agreed to strengthen the bi-national commission and pursue Africa-focused foreign policy.
Ramaphosa hinted that both leaders had reconfirmed that they would deepen their relationships.
He said such cooperation would be through agreements and that when both Presidents meet again they would be able to sign off and ensure that implementation began.
