Korea boosts Nigeria bilateral relations

14 March 2014, 18:33

Abuja - The inauguration of the Nigeria–Korea Parliamentary Friendship Group will strengthen the cordial bilateral relations, government officials from the two countries said.

The group has been launched at an event hosted by the Deputy Speaker of the Federal House of Representatives, Emeka Ihedioha.

In his inaugural speech the Deputy Speaker expressed great pleasure for hosting the delegation at his residence.

He said it had become a tradition particularly with the establishment of National Institute for Legislative Studies (NILS) to build friendly ties with other Parliaments across the world.

He added that the relationship between Nigeria and Korea had been steadily growing over the years.

“This is especially so now that its industrial revolution has been hugely extended to Nigeria,” he said.

Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, Viola Owurili, reiterated that Nigeria and Korea have had a long history of good relationship.

“I believe that this visit will deepen our diplomatic relations. We also use this occasion to call for peace in the Korean Peninsula. We have always maintained that Nigeria’s position for Korea is peace”, she said.

Director General of NILS, Dr Ladi Hamalai, called on the Ambassador of the Republic of South Korea, Choi Jong Hyum, to implement measures that would provide employment opportunities for the Nigerian youth.

Hyum said the Republic of Korea has already started building a Vocational Centre in Kogi State.

“It is our hope that this Centre would churn out massive productivity and employment for Nigeria,” said Hyum.
