Chinese Government wants to help President Muhammadu Buhari reduce poverty by sending Nigerians to China.
The Chinese ambassador to Nigeria, Cui Jianchun disclosed this on Tuesday in Abuja during the closing of the Nigeria-China Cultural week and award ceremony.
According to him, he wants to replicate China’s success in Nigeria by sending young Nigerians to China to understudy the system, get the experience and return to impact the Nigerian system.
“This February 25, Chinese President declared to the International Community that we have accomplished the eradication of extreme poverty.
“I want to share with you that this is really the biggest achievement of the Chinese Communist Party and Chinese as a nation
“I will like to share with you that we can do this together because Poverty elimination, reduction or eradication really needs the leadership and that has been shown that Chinese President had the strong will.
“How can we achieve this difficult target? We can see that a lot of project policies are in place.
“The most important aspect is that we mobilize the whole society to work together to eradicate poverty from rural areas.
“I am hoping that next year after COVID-19, I am thinking of a possibility of how we can get young people from Nigeria go to China an learn from the Chinese side, get experience. I believe that if China can do that, Nigeria can also.
“We can apply Chinese not only model but way of eradicating poverty. I think there is need for the two countries to work on this poverty eradication. You know you have your goal.
“I think this is a very meaningful thing not only for Nigerian people but also for the international community.”
KanyiDaily recalls that the envoy had earlier revealed that the Chinese government was in talks with Chinese-owned banks to establish operations in Nigeria.
