President Muhammadu Buhari says Nigeria will partner further with Ukraine to the benefit of both countries.
He stated this at the state house while receiving the outgoing Ambassador of Ukraine, His Excellency Dr. Valeril Aleksandruk, who had spent over 4 years in Nigeria.
He said Ukraine currently collaborates with Nigeria in the areas of education, military cooperation, space exploration, and many others.
The outgoing Ambassador said there are almost 5,000 Nigerians currently studying in Ukraine and the number increases every year.
Dr. Aleksandruk added that his country 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.
President Buhari wished him well in his future endeavors.
