The Chilean website “El Periodista” confirmed that the partnership between Morocco and Nigeria will contribute to reviving development in the African continent.
The Chilean website added that, since 2016, Morocco has developed a “strategic partnership” with Nigeria, especially to help this West African country achieve food security goals.
The project, which was recently mentioned by Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari, aims to produce ammonia, phosphorous acid, sulfur acid, nitrogen-phosphorus-potassium fertilizers and others, by combining phosphates coming from Morocco and gas reserves from Nigeria.
El Periodista wrote that the chemical products plant, which is under implementation in the framework of a partnership between Morocco and Nigeria, is a symbol of a successful “intra-African partnership” that will make Nigeria “a regional and global pole of fertilizers.”
The Chilean website also reported that President Buhari indicated that the new platform, which has been allocated financial investments estimated at 1.3 billion dollars, will enter operation in the coming months within the framework of the partnership project between the two African countries.
“When these projects will be added to the 44 existing mixing plants, Nigeria will indeed become a regional and global fertilizer pole,” the Nigerian president said.
The Nigerian President concluded by saying that “this partnership, which will benefit both parties, is a true example of what intra-African trade and partnership should be.”
