President Buhari lauds 50 years of robust diplomatic relationship between Nigeria and China, noting that it has yielded benefits for both countries.

He says Nigeria highly commends China’s feat in poverty eradication, and success in building a moderately prosperous society in all respects, witnessed under the strong leadership of the Communist Party of China.
