In his remarks, Holness said Nigeria had been very supportive of Jamaica, with the two countries having commercial agreements in place.

He said: “The maiden flight from Lagos to Jamaica about two years ago was well received. We equally have relationships in the creative industry, sports and finance.”

While referring to a recent opinion article written by Buhari, and published in international newspapers, Holness said he agreed that the Commonwealth could be more than just a club of friends who have affinity with the United Kingdom, “and become an economic powerhouse.

”All the elements are there; common language, large market, and many others. It can become a serious economic force.”
