“The current market situation in the oil industry is unsustainable and totally unacceptable,” Buhari told Qatar’s ruler during a meeting in Doha, his office said in a statement.

Buhari also highlighted the need for cooperation between OPEC and non-OPEC producers, reports Reuters. “We must cooperate both within and outside our respective organisations to find a common ground to stabilise the market,” he said.
