BUHARI TO WEIGH OPTIONS ON SIGNING AFRICA FREE TRADE AGREEMENT

ABUJA – Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari said  he will sign the treaty that seeks to make trade amongst Africans easy and effective only once he has read it properly and weighed his options.

While on his state visit in Nigeria, South African president Cyril Ramaphosa urged his counterpart on Wednesday to sign the African Contintenal Free Trade Agreement that was signed by other 44 countries across the continent.

Ramaphosa yesterday in Abuja said he will first consider what impact the agreement will have on his own country’s economy.

“In trying to guarantee employment and services for our country, we must be careful with agreements that compete with the success of our own upcoming industries.”
