AFCFTA Committee Urges Nigeria to Sign Free Trade Treaty
About 15 months after the African Continental Free Trade Area (AFCFTA) agreement was signed in Rwanda, the presidential committee on impact and readiness assessment has recommended that Nigeria sign the agreement.
The recommendation came in a report presented to President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday, June 27.
In his acceptance address, he said that though agreements negotiated will create business opportunities for Africa, still, they cannot be rushed into without full and proper consultations with all stakeholders.
He noted that Nigeria’s position is very simple, stressing that the nation supports free trade as long as it is fair and conducted on an equitable basis.
