Turkish President, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, says he believes president Muhammadu Buhari would stand with Palestine following the latest attacks by Israel on Jerusalem and Gaza.
Speaking on Friday, May 14, during a phone conversation with Buhari, Erdogan asked that Nigeria, as a member of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, stand with Palestine — another member of the organisation.
“President Recep Tayyip Erdogan spoke by phone with President Muhammadu Buhari of Nigeria. Exchanging Eid al-Fitr greetings, the two leaders discussed bilateral relations and regional developments.
Drawing attention to Turkey’s efforts exerted in order for the international community to teach the necessary lesson to unlawful, unjust and unscrupulous Israel due to its attacks against Palestine, President Erdogan voiced his belief that Nigeria would show solidarity with the Palestinians in this rightful cause,” the Turkish Presidency said in a statement posted on its Twitter handle.
