Chairman of Chinese Investors Association for Development and Promotion in Nigeria, Chief Ronnie Liu, has warned Nigeria and Nigerians not to allow the United States of America to come between them and China.
Liu made this statement in a chat with Vanguard Newspaper.
He lamented that despite US long held status as one of the greatest economy in the world, it did little to help Nigeria and other African countries.
He decried the US latest COVID-19 propaganda aimed at denting the image of the Chinese people and businesses. He called on Nigeria to reflect on the gains of its association with China so far and compare with what it has gained from US.
“The relationship between Nigeria where I have lived and done business in the past 21 years has been great and fruitful.”
“The China-Africa cooperation in the past 20 years through the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation, FOCAC, has yielded great dividends and it would be meaningless for us to allow ourselves to be driven apart by US that hasn’t shown any better love for Africa even with a far longer relationship,” Liu said.
