The Minister of Aviation, Hadi Sirika, disclosed this to State House correspondents after the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting in Abuja.

He said the agreement would mark the beginning of cooperation in the aviation sector between the two countries.

The minister said: “We presented two memoranda to the council and both were approved graciously by the council. Memo number one is to do the bilateral air service agreement between the Federal Republic of Nigeria and the State of Kuwait.

“This provides reciprocal rights and privileges for both countries and airlines therefrom.”
