Dr Victor Oye, the National Chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), says the country’s economic partnership with China is in Nigeria’s best interest.
Oye stated this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Awka on Thursday.
He said that many countries of the world had started showing interest in China because of the vast opportunities it held and because of the economic giant it had become.
“No man is an island. We need to continue to work together and explore all means to make this country move forward and I think that’s what the President has done.
“He went to China to explore new avenues and new opportunities in the global market and nobody should tell me that we will continue to face a particular direction in the development of this country.
“He wouldn’t have entered into an agreement that would imperil Nigeria’s interest.
“He would not do that; am sure about that.”
Oye called on the Federal Government to take urgent steps to end the clashes between farmers and herdsmen as well as stop further loss of lives and property.
He warned that the development could worsen and increase poverty if not quickly addressed. (NAN)
