The Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi has invited President Muhammadu Buhari to the 3rd India-Africa Forum Summit billed to hold in New Delhi on October 29. Modi’s invite was sent through the Indian Petroleum Minister Dharmendra Pradhan who led his country’s delegation to Buhari’s inauguration on Friday. “This was a significant event as this is the first time there has been a democratic and peaceful transfer of power in Nigeria which has been internationally praised. Several heads of state and governments and senior leaders from around the world attended the event,” the petroleum ministry said in a statement. Nigeria is the fourth largest source of crude oil and the second biggest source of liquefied natural gas (LNG) for India. “Over 100 Indian public and private sector companies are active in Nigeria in various sectors including the upstream sector, import of crude and LNG, telecoms, IT, automobile, pharmaceuticals, among others,” the statement added.
