Gov. Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State today said that his state would collaborate with the Kingdom of Morocco in the areas of solar energy and agriculture.
Tambuwal stated this after a meeting with the Moroccan Ambassador to Nigeria, Mr Mosidfa Bouh, in Abuja. This is contained in a statement issued by his spokesman, Malam Imam Imam.
“Morocco has distinguished itself in some critical sectors, as such relationship between the two states will be of utmost importance to the two parties. We discussed a number of issues which we hope to concretize in follow-up discussions. We sought a closer working relationship between our two states, especially in areas like solar energy and leather works.
“Other areas are agriculture, especially irrigation, educational and cultural integration, as well as fertiliser management.
In terms of fertiliser, we informed the Ambassador that Sokoto has a large deposit of primary natural substances needed for making fertiliser,” the Governor was quoted to have said.
