Nigeria Will Continue To Collaborate With China For Critical Infrastructure – Presidency

The Presidency has said that the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration will continue to work with the Chinese government in the area of provision of critical infrastructure in the country.

Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina stated this on Friday in Abuja when he received in the audience the Chinese Ambassador to Nigeria His Excellency Cui Jianchun in his office.

He said,

“Nigeria has high respect for China and what China is helping Nigeria to achieve particularly in the area of infrastructure. President Buhari came at a time of severe infrastructure deficit in the country and resolved to make a difference and he is making that difference with the assistance of China. Nigeria appreciates China a lot for these and will continue to collaborate with it.”

Adesina stated that the Nigerian President had been to China two times in furtherance of the relationship and looks forward to greater collaboration.

He also assured the Ambassador that the media office of the President was ready to join hands with the Chinese in advancing the relationship.
