An expert on Nigeria-China relations, Dr Tochukwu Okeke, Monday cautioned the National Assembly against approving loan requests from the executive.

He spoke in Abuja at a capacity building workshop for media and civil society themed ‘Countering Chinese Authoritarian Influence in Nigeria through Advocacy in the National Assembly’.

He said the relationship between Nigeria and China must be based on mutual benefits, not lopsided in favour of the Asian giant.

Okeke, a lecturer with University of Abuja, said Nigeria had a long history of relations with China at different levels through decades.

On his part, Dr Kola Idowu of Kimpact Development Initiative, advised the media to be fully engaged in the promotion of the nation’s interests regarding bilateral agreements being entered into by Nigeria with China or any other country.
