President Goodluck Jonathan will embark on a three-day state visit to Nairobi, Kenya, today, on the invitation of President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Presidential spokesman Reuben Abati, in a statement yesterday, said the visit was in furtherance of efforts towards boosting the bilateral cooperation between Nigeria and Kenya, initiated during Kenyatta’s visit to Abuja earlier this July.

Abati said bilateral talks between both nations will focus on the expansion of cooperation between them in the areas of trade, economic development, agriculture and tourism development.

He said Jonathan would be accompanied by his wife Patience and the Ministers of Foreign Affairs, Agriculture, Industry, Trade and Investment, Interior, Petroleum Resources and Culture, Tourism & National Orientation.

Jonathan, who is also scheduled to participate in a business forum with leading Kenyan and Nigerian investors, would address a joint session of the Kenyan Parliament and meet Nigerians resident in the country before returning to Abuja on Saturday.
