Wife of the President, Mrs Aisha Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday unveiled a new vessel of the Nigeria Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) in Seoul, South Korea.

Speaking at the event, Mrs Buhari said the acquisition of the vessel, named LNG ABUJA 11, was an additional impetus to the growth of export-related businesses that would improve revenue generation for the country.

She said more than $10 million dollars was generated from the export of quality Nigerian materials to Korean shipyards.

She said the relationship between Nigeria and South Korea was quite in line with the present administration’s human capital development and job creation drive.

She expressed confidence that despite challenges in the global energy sector, the two countries would continue to occupy important positions with respect to international energy security and development.

She said although Nigeria was undergoing a process of transformation for improved quality of life of the people, it was necessary to provide avenues for businesses to achieve their full potentials and deliver long term values.
