A German business delegation will accompany Gauck.

There have been several visits by former Nigerian presidents and German Chancellor, Angela Merkel, with the aim to further deepen the bilateral ties.

Several Ministers from both countries have also visited their counterparts on official trips during the years.

As a result of such meetings, a Bi-National Commission between both countries was established in 2011.

It forms the umbrella of the two countries’ bilateral relations and aims to continuously intensify their cooperation on a range of topics.

Since the inauguration of the first elected Nigeria leader, Olusegun Obasanjo and the end of military rule in 1999, bilateral relations between Germany and Nigeria have intensified.
