Nigeria is very satisfied with the defense industry products it has acquired from Turkey, the Nigerian military chief said on Monday.

Nigeria wants to further enhance the existing cordial relationship between the two countries, particularly with the armed forces of Turkey, army chief Lt. Gen. Faruk Yahaya said in a meeting with Turkish Ambassador Hidayet Bayraktar in Nigeria’s capital Abuja.

The two discussed ways to strengthen military cooperation between the two countries, with Yahaya conveying that Nigeria is keen to buy more defense products from Turkey.

The Nigerian commander said his visit to the 15th International Defense Industry Fair held recently in Istanbul was productive and he had fruitful negotiations with Turkish officials.
