Arrangements have been concluded for President Muhammadu Buhari’s official visit to the Peoples’ Republic of China in April, the Chinese Ambassador to Nigeria, Gu Xiaojie, has said.

Xiaojie stated this when he visited the Minister of Science and Technology, Dr. Ogbonnaya Onu, in Abuja, according to a statement in Abuja on Wednesday by the Chief Press Secretary to the minister, Mr. Taiye Akinyemi.

The envoy said the visit was significant because it would strengthen diplomatic relations between China and Nigeria.

He put the volume of trade between Nigeria and China in 2015 at $14.9bn, describing Nigeria as China’s biggest trading partner in Africa.
