Both leaders will discuss bilateral issues on how to continue to expand diplomatic and economic relationships between Nigeria and the UAE.

The Assembly of the Forum for Promoting Peace in Muslim Societies is an annual event organized by the government of the UAE.

 “The Sixth Assembly will build upon the discussions and outputs of previous assemblies, as well as an appreciation of the UAE’s decision to proclaim 2019 as the year of ‘tolerance’.

“The Sixth Assembly envisages an opportunity to initiate a civilised dialogue on the formulation of a new concept of tolerance; one that is humane and generous, and to transform a perspective that makes tolerance a religious imperative,” the UAE government said.

Osinbajo is expected back in Nigeria on December 9.
