She added, “The online class aims to foster cultural exchange and strengthen Nigeria-China relations by offering Mandarin Chinese learning opportunities to tertiary students and interested individuals.

“We are very confident that the project will be successful and what we want is that the whole of Africa and Nigeria will benefit from it all,” he noted.
