FG Committed To Sustain Mutually Beneficial Relations With Canada – Akume

The federal government has assured the Canadian government of its commitment to consolidate on the existing relationship with the country on the heels of their bilateral ties for mutual economic benefits in agricultural development.

The Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Senator George Akume, gave the assurance while receiving in audience the Canadian High Commissioner to Nigeria, Dr Jamie Christoff, in the company of the Canadian Political Attache to Nigeria, Mr Michael Murphy, in his office.

He recalled that in 2022, Nigeria was Canada’s largest bilateral trade partner in Africa, with Canadian imports from Nigeria totalling about $1.7bn mainly on mineral fuels, oils and cocoa.

On the current economic situation in the country, the SGF said it was inherited but gave the assurance that the hardship will only be temporary due to the current economic policies of the government, fundamentally designed to cushion the situation and bring succour to the citizenry
