The Presidential Candidate for Kowa Party paid a courtesy visit to His Excellency Paul Lehmann, the Australia High Commissioner to Nigeria on Friday, 30th November.
The High Commissioner, who is currently the longest serving head of any foreign mission in Nigeria and SFB who himself retired as a Governance adviser with UK Government’s Department For International Development in Nigeria , shared thoughts on Nigeria’s development and the forth coming elections.
Australia, like Nigeria is a federation with several autonomous provinces, rich in mineral resources, very advanced in infrastructure development especially ports management and emerging green energy. SFB is optimistic that maintaining a close development relationship with Australia would work for the mutual benefit of both countries.
