Nigeria and South Sudan Sign Cooperation Agreement

Nigeria and South Sudan signed a cooperation agreement on oil and gas, trade, education, health, culture, among others. Nigeria’s Foreign Affairs Minister, Geoffrey Onyeama, and his South Sudanese counterpart, Nhial Deng Nhial, signed the agreement in Abuja.

According to Onyeama, the agreement is hoped to be a framework that will enhance “our deep relation.”

Though the agreement did not include security, Onyeama said Nigeria would continue supporting South Sudan’s peace and stability efforts.

“For us, we believe it will be a win-win for the two countries to have meaningful and profitable cooperation,” he said. “We believe we can achieve greater things economically, socially and to really push for greater engagement between our two countries,” he added.
