Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State, Nigeria, announced yesterday a new agriculture and solar energy collaboration between Nigeria and Morocco.

In a statement provided by his spokesperson, the Governor was quoted as saying: 'Morocco has distinguished itself in some critical sectors, as such a relationship between the two states will be of utmost importance to the two parties.'

Nigeria's Sokoto state has a large reserve of natural resources needed for making fertilizer.

The governor also stated that he discussed other areas for future cooperation with Morocco's Ambassador to Nigeria, Mr. Mosidfa Bouh. 'We discussed a number of issues which we hope to concretize in follow-up discussions.We sought closer working relationship between our two states, especially in areas like solar energy and leather works,' said the governor.
