Nigeria to sign educational MoU with Sudan, Rwanda
The Federal Government has expressed readiness to sign Memorandum of Understanding, MoU, with the Sudanese and Rwandan governments on educational cooperation.
Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu, dropped the hint in Abuja during separate meetings with the Ambassadors of both countries in his office.
Adamu noted that the Federal Ministry of Education had earlier forwarded copies of the draft MoUs to the Embassies of Sudan and Rwanda for their inputs.
The minister urged the ambassadors to update the documents and forward them for further diplomatic actions that would lead to the formal signing of the document.
He stated that Nigeria and the two countries have enjoyed a long history of cordial relationships.
Adamu also ordered the director of Education Support Services in the ministry, Mrs Justina Ibe, to liaise with the embassies on the issue of the MoU. Also speaking, the Sudanese Ambassador to Nigeria, Mr. Bushra Mohammed Ali, and his Rwandan counterpart, Stanislas Kamanzi, assured the minister of their countries’ favourable disposition to the educational cooperation in view.
