Shri Balasubramanian, the Indian High Commissioner to Nigeria, stated on Monday that his nation was prepared to offer the assistance required to put an end to insecurity in Nigeria.
With social investments in solar energy, artificial intelligence, Fintech, and scientific intelligence, he promised to further strengthen India-Nigeria friendship and economic links.
This was said by the High Commissioner while addressing the media at the flag-raising ceremony for India’s 75th anniversary of independence that was conducted at the Indian High Commission in Abuja.
He said, “As you know, many of the defence training has been given in India; various security outfits have been trained in military installations and training institute, so we would be happy to continue the partnership in cooperation with the Nigerian government and we are ready to assist in that direction.”
He also praised and called the ties between the two nations the best.
“India-Nigeria relationship is one of the best. We started our relationship even before Nigeria’s independence in 1958, when we had established our office in Lagos. Since then, our relationship has developed, we have partnered in human capacity development, we are very happy that with the cooperation of the Nigerian government, we can now say that our relationship is strong and very cordial,” he said.
Although India has made an investment of $14.9 million in the nation, the freshly appointed commissioner remarked that he was looking forward to fostering the connection in all spheres.
“Whether it is training or trade, economic relations, political relations, I am looking forward to improving bilateral ties in all these areas,” he added.
