President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday in Johannesburg said that his administration would take actions to correct the mistakes that hindered the implementation of agreements signed with China under past administrations for the development of rail transportation in Nigeria.

Speaking at bilateral talks with President Xi Jinping at the Forum of China-Africa Cooperation, President Buhari said that the Federal Government will ensure it fulfils Nigeria’s obligations under the agreements so as to reap the full benefit of the deals.

A statement by the Special Adviser Media and Publicity to the President, Femi Adesina quoted Buhari as saying, “I have looked into the previous agreements and we will now keep our part of the bargain.”

President Buhari applauded China’s ongoing support for the development of Nigeria’s agricultural sector, noting that Chinese advisers deployed to some states of the federation were helping to train farmers on water conservation and the use of more productive seeds.

President Xi Jinping, who described Nigeria as a very important ally of China in Africa, said that China was keen to work with Nigeria for the mutual benefit of both countries.
