President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated the Chinese community in Nigeria and worldwide on the Chinese Lunar New Year which begins on January 28.

\n

The President’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, on Sunday, said the President Buhari had sent the congratulatory message before he proceeded on a short vacation on Thursday.

In the message, Buhari noted that China has made a series of social and economic achievements during the past few decades.

\n

He said China has made simultaneous progress in economic, political, cultural, social and bioenvironmental areas, and has achieved average yearly economic growth far above the world’s average.

\n

He also noted that the country has taken the second place in the world’s Gross Domestic Product ranking.

\n

Buhari said Chinese people still highly emphasise the concept of family and the opportunity of reunion, much as Nigerians do, describing it as “our shared value.”

\n \n\n

He added, “After 46 years of the establishment of diplomatic relations, Nigeria and China have become close economic, political and cultural partners.

\n

“During the state visit to China last April, we reached consensus that the two countries should give full play to corresponding development strategies, strong economic complementarity and enormous cooperative potential.

\n

“I am confident that our strategic partnership will remain extremely successful in the Year of Rooster.

\n

“May the relations between Nigeria and China have another profitable and affluent year. Happy New Year!”
