COVID-19: Chinese support strengthened Nigeria — Buhari

President, Muhammadu Buhari, has said Chinese support tremendously strengthened Nigeria’s effort against COVID-19.

Buhari disclosed this in a letter he personally signed and addressed to his Chinese counterpart, President Xi Jinping, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the establishment of bilateral ties between Nigeria and the People’s Republic of China.

The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, made the letter dated January 28, 2021, available to journalists on Monday via a statement titled, ‘As China-Nigeria relations clock 50, President Buhari expresses satisfaction’.

Recall that first human cases of COVID-19 were reported by officials in Wuhan City, China, in December 2019.

Since then, the virus has been spreading across countries and continents through person-to-person transmission.

But Buhari said since the outbreak of the pandemic, China has been working with Nigeria and other African countries to safeguard their citizens.
