The Kenyan President, Mr Uhuru Kenyatta, arrived Abuja on Sunday evening on an official visit to Nigeria barely 24hrs after twin explosions rocked the coastal town of Mombasa in Kenya.
The Kenyan president was received by the FCT minister, Sen. Bala Mohammed.
Speaking after receiving the president, the FCT minister said the visit was to strengthen the bilateral relations between Nigeria and Kenya.
He said Kenyatta and his host, President Goodluck Jonathan, would discuss how to strengthen economic relationship between the two countries as well as the security challenges facing them.
“President Jonathan believes in African brotherliness; just yesterday some areas were bombed in Kenya, it is better the two countries come together and discuss the way forward to address the security challenges,” he said.
The minister presented the Kenyan president with the Key to the City, which conferred on him the Honorary Citizenship of Abuja, as a mark of respect for strong friendship between the two countries.
Kenyatta is also expected to participate in discussions during the World Economic Forum for Africa due to begin in Abuja on Wednesday.
