The All Progressives Congress (APC) has expressed its intention to enter into partnership with the Communist Party of China in its effort to deliver on its promise on the change agenda.
The Communist Party is the founding and ruling political party of the People’s Republic of China.
The APC National Secretary, Mai Mala Buni, was quoted in a statement issued wednesday by the party’s publicity department as having told a Chinese government delegation led by the chargé d’affaires of the Chinese Embassy in Nigeria, Qin Jian, during a meeting that his party was interested in benefiting from capacity-building and other collaborative ventures.
Buni, who was represented at the meeting by the APC Director of Organisation, Alhaji Kyari Abubakar, said there was no other better time for such cooperation than now.
“China is a very important technical and trading partner to Nigeria. Both countries have enjoyed excellent social, economic and cultural relations. As China is aware, Nigeria recently witnessed a change of government which ushered in the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari. The time for better cooperation between both countries is now as the APC and the President Buhari administration worksto deliver on its change mandate.”
