Gulf of Guinea: Buhari, Nguema Mbasogo reach agreement

President Muhammadu Buhari Friday in Malabo, Equatorial Guinea, said leaders of neighbouring countries will work together and provide all necessary assistance to secure the Gulf of Guinea.

Speaking at a bilateral meeting with President Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo of Equatorial Guinea, on the sideline of the 2019 Gas Summit, Buhari expressed concern on the rate of piracy, kidnapping and smuggling in the Gulf of Guinea.

In the agreement with Nguema, who hosted the summit, that Nigeria and Equatorial Guinea will provide joint patrols, Buhari added that it will be “more cost effective when we work together. We have to jointly protect ourselves.”
“Our neighbourhood is very strong. Our Navy is doing a good job. We are going to give them equipment and make them more competent.

“We share the oil fields and so much in common. We will secure the Gulf absolutely,” he said.

The President also held another meeting with the Secretary General of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries, OPEC, Sanusi Barkindo, where he was briefed on an important upcoming meeting of the organization in December.

The OPEC meeting will decide on the sharing output production quotas as the current agreement binding the members will run out in March 2020.

President Buhari assured that he will secure the best possible deal for the country at the meeting.
