The Head of Bundestrat, the upper chamber of the German Parliament, Malu Dreyer, has pledged Germany’s support to Nigeria in its economic recovery effort. Dreyer, who spoke at the weekend while receiving a delegation of the Nigeria Senate led by its president, Bukola Saraki, in Berlin said that Nigeria deserved the support of Germany to boost its economic recovery plans, Aljazeera reported. A statement by Saraki’s special adviser on media and publicity, Yusuph Olaniyonu, quoted Dreyer as saying that “Germany will support the on-going economic recovery program in the country.” She said that her country would look towards extending the special partnership and grassroots co-operation which it presently had with Rwanda to Nigeria, adding that more exchange programs between the two countries should be initiated. “The partnership between Nigeria and Germany is very important and should be nurtured. This partnership, at a very high level, can help the entire population in Nigeria. We have to do all that is necessary to support Africa to prevent internal crisis that would later plague Europe.”
