German parliament pledges support to Nigeria in economic recovery efforts.
Head of Bundestrat, the Upper Chamber of the German parliament Mrs. Malu Dreyer, who disclosed this at the weekend while receiving a delegation of the Nigerian Senate led by its President, Dr Bukola Saraki, in Berlin said that Nigeria deserved the support of Germany to boost its economic recovery plans.
Mrs. Dreyer said that the European country would look towards extending the special partnership and grassroots co-operation to Nigeria, adding that more exchange programmes between the two countries should be initiated.
Responding, Dr. Saraki reiterated the need for Germany to partner Nigeria in the areas of economic co-operation, security and renewable energy.
He said that the Senate delegation was in Berlin to strengthen the existing relations between the two countries as represented by the visit of the German President to Nigeria last year in company of some German businessmen.
Dr. Saraki said power was one area where Nigeria required serious help as its inadequacy affects the success of businesses and limits the productive ability of the people.
