Nigeria would partner further with Ukraine to the benefit of the two countries, President Muhammadu Buhari has assured.
The president said this at State House in Abuja Tuesday while receiving in farewell audience the outgoing Ambassador of Ukraine, His Excellency Dr Valeril Aleksandruk, who had spent over four years in Nigeria.
Ukraine currently collaborates with Nigeria in the areas of education, military cooperation, space exploration, and many others.
In his remarks, the outgoing ambassador said there are about 5,000 Nigerians currently studying in Ukraine.
He said the the number increases every year because education is a great investment for the future.
He said Ukraine also supplies Nigeria military hardware and ammunition, particularly to fight insurgency, and also informed that two agreements have been signed by the countries on space exploration.
“We are ready for new level in bilateral relations,” he said.
The president wished the outgoing ambassador well in future assignments his country would give him.
