What Buhari Told These Nigerian Students In China
President Muhammadu Buhari is in China on official visit.
He met with Nigerians in China and some of them were students on scholarship in the Asian nation.
The students, who had earlier visited a train maintenance plant in Xi'an, northwest China's Shaanxi Province and the high-speed railway training base, innovation workshop and train maintenance plant, got some words of advice from the President.
"I hope you will make the best use of this opportunity given to you.
"Nigeria is grateful to China for extending this generosity to us.
"The Chinese are helping Nigeria greatly with building infrastructure, it is very much appreciated. We are pleased with the training they are providing for our Nigerian students," the President told the students.
Some 30 Nigerians are studying in Chang'an University in Xi'an, China and they are giving attention to how the China rail system, which is one of the best in the world, works.
Chinese company, China Civil Engineering Construction Corporation, is handling Nigeria's new light rail system in Abuja and other rail revival drive in some other states.
They are expected to hand over the maintenance and servicing of the train to Nigerians in coming years and the students are being prepared to take up the duty.
