Foreign Minister says Nigeria plans to join BRICS

Nigeria intends to seek membership in the BRICS organization after carrying out necessary measures within its state, according to Yusuf Tuggar, the Foreign Minister of Nigeria, who said this in an interview with RIA Novosti.

The head of Nigeria's Foreign Ministry arrived in Moscow for an official visit on Wednesday.

"We have this intention. As I've already mentioned, Nigeria has a democratic system with deliberative elements. Therefore, before taking such measures, we usually carry out active interaction with various interest groups and different internal bodies," said Tuggar.

The minister noted the significance of the presence of Nigeria's Vice President, Kashim Shettima, at the most recent BRICS summit in South Africa.

"We are extremely interested in this, and we look forward to this," stressed the Nigerian Foreign Minister.
