Abuja, Nigeria – The Federal Government has issued a statement addressing concerns over the recent signing of the Samoa Agreement, reassuring citizens that the decision aligns with Nigeria’s best interests.

According to the Minister of Information and National Orientation, Mohammed Idris, the agreement was signed after thorough reviews and consultations by an interministerial committee comprising the Federal Ministry of Budget and Economic Planning, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and Federal Ministry of Justice.

The Samoa Agreement, a partnership between the European Union and the Organisation of African, Caribbean, and Pacific States (OACPS), aims to promote sustainable development, climate change mitigation, investment opportunities, and human rights.

The Samoa Agreement, a partnership between the EU and its Member States on one side, and the members of the OACPS on the other, was signed by Nigeria at the OACPS Secretariat.

Negotiations began in 2018 during the 73rd United Nations General Assembly and the agreement was initially signed in Apia, Samoa on November 15, 2018, by all 27 EU Member States and 47 of the 79 OACPS Member States.

The agreement comprises 103 articles, including a common foundational compact and three regional protocols addressing the unique issues of the Africa-EU, Caribbean-EU, and Pacific-EU

Aluta News reports that the government’s clarification comes amidst concerns raised by some Nigerians regarding the agreement’s potential implications on national laws and values.
