LAGOS – India’s High Commissioner to Nigeria, Ghanashyam Rangaiah, on Tuesday, said his tenure would mostly be directed at promoting education and health cooperation with Nigeria. Rangaiah told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos that this would reduce the number of Nigerians visiting India for education and medical purposes.
“Gradually, we are trying to make Nigeria stand on its own and be the beacon of strength for the rest of West Africa’’, he said.
Rangaiah explained that the purpose was to make qualitative education and good health facilities accessible and affordable to Nigerians instead of travelling to India.[eap_ad_2]
“We longer want Nigerians to come to the conclusion that it is only when they visit India that they can study or have access to good quality healthcare.
“I personally feel that it is expensive for Nigerians to be going to India for medical treatment and study’’, he said. (NAN)[eap_ad_3]
