ABUJA: Nigeria's President Muhammadu Buhari said on Wednesday the country will soon sign up to an African continental free trade agreement.

Buhari made the comment while speaking at a press conference during a visit by South Africa's President Cyril Ramaphosa.

The agreement was signed by 44 countries in March, with South Africa joining earlier this month.
