President Muhammadu Buhari has said that his government remains committed to contracts signed by his predecessor Goodluck Jonathan with Chinese firms on railway, roads and hydroelectric dam projects.
Buhari said this in an exclusive interview with Xinhua News Agency ahead of his 5-day state visit to China starting today.
China has the technical and financial capacity and the experience of development while retaining the goodwill to help Nigeria, said Buhari.
“Really, this is an opportunity Nigeria cannot afford to lose,” the president told Xinhua in Abuja.
Buhari said Nigeria and China enjoy vast opportunities in cooperation in such fields as agriculture, mining, electric power generation, and railway and road construction.
He said Nigeria stands ready to expand the development of industries, especially in manufacturing and textile industries and speed up infrastructure construction, which presents huge opportunities for both China and Nigeria.
“The opportunities that present themselves for us … are virtually limitless,” he said.
