Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari Thursday approved nine agreements including a Extradition Treaty between Nigeria and United Arab Emirates (UAE) toward strengthening the country’s anti-corruption campaign.

The agreements signed would enable both countries to strengthen their economies and security, the Nigerian leader said in Abuja.

The signing of the agreements was in demonstration of the nation’s sovereign capacity to fulfill its international obligations and take important steps for the benefit of the economy, security and the anti-corruption war within and outside Nigeria, Buhari said.

Nigeria and the United Arab Emirates in January 2016 in Abu Dhabi signed six different agreements to enhance bilateral relations. Enditem
