Presidential spokesman, Femi Adesina, says the relationship between Nigeria and China is one that President Muhammadu Buhari cherishes highly.
Adesina said this in a statement signed by Mr. Abiodun Oladunjoye, a Deputy Director (Information), Presidential Media Office, Abuja, .
Oladunjoye said Adesina stated this when he received the Vice Minister of Information of State Council, People’s Republic of China, Mr. Guo Weimin, who was on an official visit to Nigeria.
According to Adesina, the fact that the Nigerian president cherishes the cooperation between Nigeria and China automatically means that there will always be areas of mutual cooperation between the two countries.
Adesina explained that media organisations from the two countries should profit from the mutual cooperation.
Earlier, Weimin said the delegation, comprising officials of the Chinese Government, was in Nigeria to explore areas of exchange of ideas towards deepening the relationship between the Chinese and the Nigerian media industry.
He identified New Media, transparency in governance, broadcast communication and socio-cultural values as areas in which the delegation hoped to share ideas with their Nigerian counterparts.
