The Inter-party Advisory Council, IPAC says Nigeria and other countries in the African continent have a lot to learn from the exemplary strides of the Chinese Communist Party in the development of China’s infrastructure and economy.
The IPAC National Chairman, Alhaji Yabaji Sani stated this in Abuja when he played host to a delegation of the Chinese Communist Party.
Alhaji Sani who extolled the developmental strides China has recorded overtime under the leadership of the communist party said the forum was to strengthen the relationship with them in line with APAC’s ambition to build a political culture of collaborative democracy for economic prosperity, technological advancements, security and integration.
He said “All member political parties on the platform of IPAC share a tremendous degree of admiration for the Communist Party of China over its breathtaking accomplishments in the transformation of a rural economy into a world-leading economy under a historically unprecedented time span of seventy years.
“We are equally attracted and excited by the phenomenal feat of the CCP in its leadership and guidance of a one-point four billion-strong population of divergent ethnic backgrounds and communities towards imbibing and internalizing the spirit of a united and patriotic people.
“We are enthralled by the spectacular achievements, unsurpassed in the records of human development, by the People’s Republic of China under the supervision of the Communist Party, in the near-total banishment of poverty, illiteracy and disease”
The leader of the Communist Party delegation of the People’s Republic of China, Comrade Wu Baocai noted that the renewed relationship between Nigeria and China has become more stronger and beneficial to both countries in the area of education and trade.
The communist Party visit to IPAC was in continuation of the delegation’s ongoing visit and discussion with Nigeria Political Party Leader and other stakeholders in the nation’s democratic process ahead of the 2023 general election.
