“Relationships Should Be Beneficial” – Wike Speaks On Agreement With Ireland 

The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike has said relationships should be beneficial and that he won’t rush enter into agreements that would end after discussions.
The Minister stated this yesterday when he received the Irish Ambassador to Nigeria, Peter Ryan.
He said that he wanted to see through any bilateral agreements his administration made with any group or individual.
According to him, gone are the days bilateral agreements were not taken to a logical conclusion.
Wike then urged the visiting ambassador to take advantage on the vast area of agricultural land in the nation’s capital to further strengthen the two countries’ partnership.
“Relationship should be beneficial. I won’t be in a hurry to enter into arrangements that end immediately after discussions.”
“Nigeria has strong ties with the Republic of Ireland and so we will like to leverage on that, especially in the area of Agriculture which Ireland is known for,” Wike said.
Peter Ryan, on his part, regretted that several bilateral agreements had ended at the discussion level.
He disclosed that his country is willing to collaborate with the FCT Administration, especially in the areas of education, agriculture and information and communication technology, ICT.
He said the Republic of Ireland had a very large Nigerian population, with many of them making remarkable contributions to the economy of Ireland especially in the area of Sports and ICT, noting that the Republic of Ireland has a lot of partnership with several capitals in the world.
He said, “Education is very important to us and has helped us achieve the success we have in the area of technology.
“Our mission is very much the same, Ireland is world class in a number of areas, one of them is agriculture and education.
“In Ireland, we intend to be very practical as we know that we can’t do everything, so in things we do, we try to do best we can.”
“From the first week of December, we are bringing to Abuja, the head of the largest vocational education provider in the land of Ireland. He will be here, and has no agenda, so he is at your disposal.”
