The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Prince Uche Secondus has assured that the distress situation Nigerians are going through under All Progressives Congress, APC administration will be over if the party regains victory at the election tribunal.Secondus gave the assurance on Tuesday while receiving a delegation of The Central Committee of the Communist Party of China, CPU, led by its Deputy Director General, Mr Zhou GUOHUI at the party’s National Secretariat, Wadata Plaza, Abuja.The PDP National Chairman lamented that Nigeria is going through a lot of challenges especially in the area of economy and security which is due largely to the poor governance delivery of the ruling APC.According to a statement from the National Chairman’s media office signed by Ike Abonyi, the Prince Secondus told his visitors that Nigeria and China share a lot in common especially in the area of population where China with over 1.4 billion persons are the largest concentration of human beings in the World while Nigeria with over 200million people are the largest concentration of blacks in the World.
He noted that the population of China makes it imperative that no nation can ignore her given the volume of trade involved in relating with the country.
The PDP, he stressed, would cherish deepening relationship with China because there is a lot to learn from the country that would help in the infrastructural development of our country.
The National Chairman recalled that the relationship between China and Nigeria was long opened by the PDP administration when it came to power in 1999 as it sustained democracy for 16 years uninterrupted.
Prince Secondus commended Chinese government for ear marking about $60b dollars for the development of Africa as he expressed the hope that Nigeria will benefit handsomely from the gesture.
Earlier the leader of the delegation leading five others had explained Chinese interest in Africa particularly Nigeria and how China has strived to maintain good working relationship between the two countries.
