Chinese President writes Buhari, seeks improved relations with Nigeria

CHINESE President, Xi Jinping, says his country will use the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations with Nigeria to promote a strategic partnership to new heights.

A statement by presidential aide, Femi Adesina, today, said President Xi disclosed his intentions in a letter addressed to President Buhari.

“Nigeria is an important strategic partner of China in Africa. China-Nigeria cooperation has been the pacesetter of China-Africa cooperation,’’ the Chinese President is said to have written in his piece.

According to Adesina, President Xi’s letter is an appreciation of Buhari’s congratulatory letter on the 72nd anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China, which came up on October 1.

The Chinese leader said he attached great importance to the development of China-Nigeria relations and assured President Buhari that his country would spare no effort in strengthening existing relations.
