MESSAGE OF MELİH ULUEREN, AMBASSADOR -DESIGNATE OF THE REPUBLIC OF TURKEY, ON THE OCCASION OF THE 58TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE INDEPENDENCE OF THE FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF NIGERIA

On the 58th anniversary of the Independence of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, I would like to congratulate our Nigerian brothers and sisters.

Nigeria, which has the largest population and the largest economy in Africa, is among the most important countries in the world.

I wish Nigeria, which has taken its destiny in its own hands 58 years ago, a continued progress towards achieving a more prosperous future.

Our relations with the African continent has gained momentum in the last decade. We see Nigeria - the rising power of its region - as a strategic partner in Africa and we aim to develop and diversify our relations in all areas.

The important visit of the President of Nigeria, His Excellency Muhammadu Buhari, to our country about a year ago, on October 19, 2017, revealed our common will to deepen our bilateral relations and move forward.

We want to improve our relations in every field and move forward in the economic field as well. We are aiming to increase the bilateral trade volume between our countries, with a total population of more than 270 million combined, to the benefit of both peoples.

In our country, more than a thousand Nigerian students are studying in higher education. I would like to mention that we are pleased to contribute to meet the needs of Nigeria's qualified human resources.

I trust that the friendly ties established between the two countries will grow stronger in the coming years.
