Liberia’s success is important to Nigeria – Osinbajo

Nigerian Vice-president, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo has reiterated Nigeria’s support towards Liberia in all forms.

He stated that the country’s success was important to Nigeria.

He said Nigeria would continue to extend a full range of diplomatic and other forms of assistance to Liberia as the country progressed with a new administration.

According to a press statement signed by the Senior Special Assistant to the Vice-president on Media and Publicity, Mr Laolu Akande, Osinbajo made the remarks while receiving his Liberian counterpart, Dr. Jewel Howard Taylor at the Presidential Villa, Abuja on Monday.

“Nigeria is committed to working with Liberia, we are certainly committed; the success of Liberia is important to us,” the Vice President noted.

“Like you pointed out, we have invested considerably in Liberia and our support for the Sirleaf administration is also in that respect. You can expect that we shall continue to support and even do much more for Liberia,” Osinbajo stated.

Liberian Vice President, Taylor in her earlier remarks, commended the Federal Government for its support for Liberia during the immediate past administration of Madam Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, while also urging that such kind of support should be maintained under the new presidency of George Weah.

Both Vice Presidents also spoke on the significance of their youth population, the role of technology in development and the need for greater intracontinental trade among African countries.
