We can do much more together, Osinbajo, Canadian Deputy Prime Minister says


Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and Canadian Deputy Prime Minister, Chrystia Freeland, have agreed on the need for deepening bilateral relations between Nigeria and Canada with a focus on improving trade, educational collaboration, and continuing dialogue on global energy transition issues and climate change.

This was the highlight of the meeting between both leaders in Ottawa, the capital of the North American country on Monday.

During his interaction with top Canadian parliamentarians, including cabinet members led by Freeland, Prof Osinbajo noted that, “we are hoping for much more that we can do together.”

The Canadian Deputy Prime Minister, who is also the nation’s Finance Minister, had earlier expressed similar sentiments while welcoming the Vice President.

She observed that the Canadian government values its relationship with Africa, especially Nigeria, and has been “looking forward to this visit for a long time,” adding that the relationship with Nigeria is “very important to us.”
