Statement By Turkey-nigeria Business Council

Abuja Büyükelçiliği 17.09.2017

As it has clearly been stated by the Press Release of the Turkish Embassy in Abuja dated on September 16, 2017, Turkish citizen Abdülkadir Erkahraman who has no connection with Turkish corps diplomatic or officially represents the Turkish government in Nigeria; also has no connection with DEİK's Turkey-Nigeria Business Council operating under DEİK's umbrella since 2011 and DTİK (World Turkish Business Council).

DEİK, being Turkey's sole institution entitled to shape our country's foreign economic relations around the globe has full respect to Federal Republic of Nigeria's unity, sovereignty, independence and political structure. To that end DEİK's Turkey-Nigeria Business Council remains committed to establish long-term economic and commercial ties with Nigeria based on win-win principle that will mutually benefit our nations. Certainly any action taken by person/persons who has no official connection with our country's diplomatic mission will harm the amicable relation among our nations.

To that end as DEİK, DTİK and DEİK's Turkey-Nigeria Business Council we call all parties and our counterparts in Nigeria to disregard such person/persons whose actions potentially harm the relations among our nations and invite all representatives of Nigerian business world to directly communicate with DEİK, DTİK and DEİK's Turkey-Nigeria Business Council in matters related to any economic and commercial activity between Turkey and Nigeria.

Respectfully announced to the public.
