*Meets Chinese communist party delegation
National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus, has said that the distress situation Nigerians are going through under All Progressives Congress (APC) administration will be over if the PDP regains victory at the election tribunal.
Receiving a delegation of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPU) led by its Deputy Director-General, Mr. Zhou Guohui at the party’s National Secretariat, Wadata Plaza, Abuja on Tuesday, Prince Secondus said that Nigeria is going through a lot of challenges especially in the area of economy and security which is due largely to the poor governance delivery of the ruling APC.
According to a statement from the National Chairman’s media office signed by Ike Abonyi, the Prince Secondus told his visitors that Nigeria and China share a lot in common especially in the area of population where China with over 1.4 billion persons are the largest concentration of human beings in the world while Nigeria with over 200 million people is the largest concentration of blacks in the World.
Prince Secondus said that the population of China makes it imperative that no nation can ignore her given the volume of trade involved in relating with the country.
He said that the PDP would cherish deepening relationship with China because there is a lot to learn from the country that would help in the infrastructural development of our country.
The National Chairman noted that the relationship between China and Nigeria was long opened by the PDP administration when it came to power in 1999 as it sustained democracy for 16 years uninterrupted.
Prince Secondus commended Chinese government for earmarking about $60billion for the development of Africa as he expressed the hope that Nigeria will benefit handsomely from the gesture.
Earlier, the leader of the delegation leading five others had explained Chinese interest in Africa particularly Nigeria and how China has striven to maintain good working relationship between the two countries.
