Shri Balasubramanian, India's High Commissioner to Nigeria has stated his country's willingness to help Nigeria in its fight against insecurity.
Balasubramanian made the pledge on Monday, promising to further deepen the India-Nigeria relations and economic ties with social investments in solar energy, artificial intelligence, fintech and scientific intelligence.
Speaking with pressmen at the flag hoisting ceremony to mark the 75th independence of India held at the High Commission of India in Abuja, he stated that India would be happy to partner with the Nigerian government.
"As you know, much of the defence training has been given in India; various security outfits have been trained in military installations and training institutes.
"So we would be happy to continue the partnership in cooperation with the Nigerian government and we are ready to assist in that direction."
Balasubramanian further hailed the ties between Nigeria and India, calling them the best.
"India-Nigeria relationship is one of the best. We started our relationship even before Nigeria’s independence in 1958 when we had established our office in Lagos.
"Since then, our relationship has developed. We have partnered in human capacity development, we are very happy that with the cooperation of the Nigerian government, we can now say that our relationship is strong and very cordial.
"... Whether it is training or trade, economic relations, political relations, I am looking forward to improving bilateral ties in all these areas", he stated.
