President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday in Beijing pledged that his administration would honour all agreements concluded between Nigeria and China under previous administrations.
The pledge is contained in a statement issued in Abuja by Malam Garba Shehu, the Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to the President.
Garba said the President made the pledge at a meeting with Mr Li Keqiang, the Premier of the State Council of the Peoples Republic of China.
The President said Nigeria would honour the agreements so as to ensure speedy completion of outstanding joint projects, including the 4,000 megawatts Mambilla Hydro-Electric Power Project.
Buhari told the Chinese Premier that his administration was committed to the completion, in the shortest possible time, of all joint power, rail, road and aviation projects that would directly and quickly improve the lives of Nigerians.
He said that he was particularly keen in actualising the Mambilla Power Project because of its huge potential to boost employment and national economic growth.
The Chinese Premier commended ongoing efforts by the Buhari administration to improve Nigeria’s infrastructure.
He assured the President that China was ready to work with his administration to complete all joint projects, including the Mambilla Power Project. (NAN)
