Nigeria and Bangladesh are to strengthen their military and economic relationship, a Bangladeshi official reveals.
The Bangladesh Chief of Army Staff, Gen. Abu Belal Muhammad Shafiul Hug, disclosed this after a courtesy visit to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
“I just met the Vice President and before that I met with the Chief of Defence Staff, Chief of Army Staff and other Chiefs.
“We discussed bilateral issues relating to strengthening the relationship between the two armed forces.
“This meeting we also had the same issues relating to the armed forces.
“And also how we can strengthen the bilateral relationship at the national level and also I would say increase and improve the economic and other cooperation in other sectors.’’
Hug noted that the Bangladeshi and Nigerian armed forces had a very long standing relationship.
“Nigeria sends armed forces and a lot of officers to train in Bangladesh in different training institutions like the National Defence College and Defence Chief of Staff College all in Bangladesh.
“In all, I understand through my visit this relationship will be strengthened further and we have discussed to increase the scope of cooperation in other fields also.
“And I hope in the coming years, we will see further cooperation in other fields,’’ he added. (NAN)
