Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal of Sokoto State has appealed to the Chinese government to support the ongoing fight against corruption in Nigeria.
He made the plea while receiving the Chinese ambassador to Nigeria Mr. Gu Xiaojie who paid him a courtesy visit yesterday, stressing that the country needs to fight corruption to a standstill to come out from its economic woes.
The governor called on the Chinese government to support President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration in its security and job creation efforts and expressed readiness to collaborate with China to boost commerce and establish mining and agro-allied industries in the state.
In that regard, he said his government would provide land for the establishment of ‘China Town’ in the border-town of Illela to boost trade and investment in the West African sub-region.
He said already, some Chinese companies have carried out feasibility studies on some projects, adding that the state government was awaiting their reports to determine the next line of action.
Tambuwal said apart from mining and agriculture, the two governments would explore other areas of cooperation that would be beneficial to their citizens. Such areas include education, agriculture, health and youth and women empowerment.
Earlier, the Chinese ambassador had said he was in the state to straighten the cordial working relationship between his home government and the Sokoto government.
He commended Tambuwal for the achievements so far recorded and assured that China would continue to work closely with the state government in order to achieve the desired objectives.
