President Muhammadu Buhari says sustainable development is impossible when a country is hobbled by severe infrastructural deficits.
The President spoke at State House, Abuja, while receiving in audience Mr. Wang Yi, the State Councillor and Foreign Minister, People’s Republic of China.
President Buhari thanked China for its support to the country in building of rail, road, power, defence, and many others to reduce our severe infrastructural deficits in the country.
He pledged that Nigeria would continue to honor its obligations in the relationship with the People’s Republic of China.
Mr. Wang Yi applauded what he called the mutual trust and sound personal friendship between President Buhari and President Xi Jinping of China, noting that it has guided the bilateral relationship between our two countries.
He said his country would encourage Chinese companies to increase their investments in Nigeria, while China would also readily share experience and techniques in areas like digital economy, defence, and many others.
