A Yogoslavian consulate will be opened in Kano Nigeria before end of this year,, says Yugoslavian Ambassador to Nigeria, Mr. Rifat Rondic
Rondic told Kano State Governor, Ibrahim Shekarau, said the aim was to strengthen the relationship between both countries. He said he was working hard to ensure that Nigeria reopens its embassy in Yugoslavia.
Rondic added that his country intends to enter into a bilateral agreement with Nigeria in the education sector so that more Nigerians could be awarded scholarships to study in Yugoslavian institutions of higher learning. He said his country was also interested in signing a defence pact with Nigeria as according to him, both countries had the capacity to work together to ensure peace and progress.
Shekarau said the plan by the Yugoslavian government to invest in the education sector of the country was a step in the right direction, pointing out that the move would provide opportunities for many Kano indigenes.
Malam Shekarau, who thanked the Yugoslavian government for its interest in the state, urged Yugoslavian entrepreneurs to also explore the vast commercial and tourism opportunities in the state.
