In Abuja yesterday, the European Union (EU), reassured to support the development policies and programs of President Bola Tinubu’s administration.

Rita Laranjinha, the union’s Managing Director, External Action Service, disclosed this when she briefed Vice President, Kashim Shettima, on the forthcoming Ministerial Dialogue, scheduled for Oct. 19.

“This Ministerial Dialogue will be chaired by the Vice President of the EU Mission.

“He will be here to hold meetings with members of the Nigerian government to take stock of the relations between the EU and Nigeria in different areas and to prepare the way forward in this relationship.

“Today, it was very clear that there is a lot of common interest in the relationship but there is still a lot more to do.

“Nigeria matters in the region, continent, and the world, and the EU wants to make sure that we will be a partner of choice for Nigeria.”

The Vice President, however, stated that the administration is open to interventions that work.

“The nation, like a phoenix, will rise from the ashes of despair and soar. Support us and we will, in turn, support, not just West Africa but also the entire African continent as a result of our Domino effect.

“We are really out to reposition this country. God has blessed this nation. We have not utilised half of our arable and fertile land, as well as our bountiful human resources.

“We are ready to partner with the EU in the execution of mutually-beneficial projects and programmes to the benefit of Nigerians.”
