Presidential spokesman, Mr Femi Adesina, says the relationship between Nigeria and China is one that President Muhammadu Buhari cherishes and values highly.

Mr Adesina stated this when he received in audience the Vice Minister of Information of State Council, People’s Republic of China, Mr Guo Weimin who was on an official visit to Nigeria.

The Presidential spokesman said the fact that the Nigerian President cherishes the cooperation between Nigeria and China automatically means there will always be areas of mutual cooperation between the two countries from which their media organisations should profit.

He reiterated the readiness of the presidential media team to build on the existing relationship while also exploring other areas of cooperation. Mr Adesina further assured the visiting Minister that the presidential media office will work closely with the Ministry of Information to explore areas where the agreements signed during the visit will enhance the
interests of the Nigerian media in particular and the Nigerian government in general.

The Vice Minister, Mr Guo Weimin had earlier informed Mr Adesina that he
led a team of other officials of the Chinese government to explore areas of
exchange of ideas towards deepening the relationship between the Chinese
and the Nigerian media industry. He mentioned New Media, transparency in
governance, broadcast communication and socio-cultural values as areas in
which they hope to share ideas with their Nigerian counterparts.

He also acknowledged that Presidential spokesmen have a big role to play in deepening this relationship and therefore solicits the cooperation of Mr
Adesina in that regard.

Mr Gou Weimin also said that his delegation had interacted with a broad
spectrum of Nigerian media professionals to hear first-hand from them their
expectations from the visit of the Chinese.
