The Israeli Ambassador to Nigeria, Mr Shimon Ben-Shosan, said on Thursday that his Prime Minister, Mr Benjamin Netanyahu, and the President, Mr Reuvin Rivlin, could visit Nigeria soon, 61 years after an Israeli PM came to Nigeria in 1958.

 

Ben-Shosan also said Israel would want President Muhammed Buhari to pay a visit to the country, saying that such visits from the topmost political leaders on both sides would be “historic.” He spoke at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, when he presented his Letters of Credence to the Nigerian President.

 

Buhari had already invited Netanyahu to attend Nigeria’s Democracy Day celebrations coming up on June 12.
