AFCON 2024: Côte d’Ivoire to boost cooperation with Nigeria

The Ambassador of Côte d’Ivoire to Nigeria, Mr Kalilou Traore, has said that the 2024 African Cup of Nations, AFCON, will create relevant avenue for his country to further strengthen cooperation with Nigeria.

Traore stated this in an interview with newsmen yesterday in Abuja, sequel to the country’s preparation to host the AFCON tournament from Jan. 14 to Feb. 13, 2024.

He said it has become necessary for the two countries to use the opportunity to further boost diplomatic ties between them. “The AFCON is also a big occasion for us to deepen cooperation. We will strengthen fraternity between our two countries.

“People who go to watch football matches will not just only see the matches, they will meet other people and will do business also,” he said. “So, we as an Embassy, we are organising with our partners, we are packaging for those who want to participate in Abidjan at AFCON,” he said.

The envoy added that leaders of both countries at levels of Heads of State and Heads of Ministries have a mutual relationship, saying: “We have strong agreement, many agreements between Nigeria and Côte d’Ivoire government”.
