President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday in Abuja signed the Instruments of Ratification of the Bilateral Air Services Agreements between Nigeria and Algeria; Congo; the People’s Republic of China; Qatar and Singapore.

Malam Garba Shehu, the President’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, made this known in a statement in Abuja on Monday.

Shehu stated that the signing of the agreements by the President followed approval by the Federal Executive Council (FEC).

He added that “with the execution of these Instruments, it is expected that Nigeria’s aviation links with the respective countries will improve significantly.”

Meanwhile, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, will on Tuesday inaugurate the first set of the Joint Working Group for the Economic Recovery and Growth Plan (ERGP) Focus policy labs at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

His spokesman, Laolu Akande, in a statement said this is meant to push forward with the economic progress recorded so far by the Buhari administration.

It explained that objectives of the Buhari administration’s ERGP include eradicating corruption in government procurement and processes, prudent management of resources, social inclusion, overcoming power constraints and skills shortages, and further promoting private sector inclusion.
