Chinese President XI writes Buhari, seeks to bolster relations

Chinese President Xi Jinping said his country would use the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations with Nigeria to promote the strategic partnership to new heights.

Femi Adesina, the president’s special adviser on media and publicity, in a statement Friday in Abuja, said President Xi had said so in a letter to the Nigerian leader.

According to the Chinese leader, Nigeria is an important strategic partner of China in Africa, adding that Sino-Nigerian cooperation has been the engine of Sino-African cooperation.

He appreciated his letter of congratulations on the 72nd anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China, which took place on October 1.

The Chinese leader said he attached great importance to the development of Sino-Nigerian relations, and assured President Buhari that his country would spare no effort to strengthen existing relations.
