President Muhammadu Buhari Thursday in Ankara said the global media must be commended for their'constructive coverage' of the July 15, 2016 failed coup attempt in Turkey.

Reiterating Nigeria's solidarity with Turkey after the failed attempt to oust a democratically-elected government, the President said Turkey's assumption of the Chairmanship of the D-8 from tomorrow, October 20, will afford both countries the opportunity to work together on economic, security and political issues.

Erdogan also said Turkish customs authorities were engaged in talks with their Nigerian counterparts over how hundreds of rifles allegedly made their way to Nigeria from Turkey.

Buhari is expected to fly to Istanbul on Friday for the ninth summit of D-8.

"When we trade with our national and local currencies, our countries will benefit from this".

He said it was his belief that only economies that promote trade and attract investment grow at more sustainable rates. The gains from trade are reflected in greater competitiveness, improved productivity, job creation, consumer welfare and prosperity.

He described the AU-backed Continental Free Trade Area for Africa as a "win-win for all, including member countries of the D-8".

"It is unacceptable for the D-8 to stay the same since we live in a world in which everything constantly changes" the president said, adding that the organization needs to be strengthened through the addition of new members.

"I am pleased to inform you of positive market developments now in Africa, that will support our efforts as Members of the D-8 to enlarge our markets, facilitate our trade and investments, and develop our economies". This will be a win-win for all, including member countries of the D-8.
