Wike: Abuja to collaborate on agriculture and education with Turkiye and South Korea.


FCT Minister Nyesom Wike announced on Tuesday that South Korea and the FCT Administration would collaborate on vocational education. Additionally, Mr. Wike stated a desire to collaborate with Turkiye on agricultural development.

When the Turkish ambassador and the South Korean ambassador to Nigeria paid him a visit at his office, the minister made this statement. He revealed to the South Korean ambassador Kim Young-Chae on Tuesday that he visited and spoke about vocational education while serving as Nigeria’s minister of education.

He called the vocational education system in South Korea “impressive.”

“I had hoped that we would have ended that cooperation at the time, but sadly, that did not happen. As the FCT minister, I would also like to reintroduce that to see how we can also have that vocational school, added Mr. Wike.

Mr. Wike continued by saying that he would like to bring a hands-on approach to the FCT vocational schools and skill development facilities. He stated that South Korea will be a partner in this. The minister expressed his admiration for Samsung after learning that the corporation occasionally provides automobiles and refrigerators to vocational schools for use in classrooms.

Mr. Young-Chae informed the minister of his nation’s partnership with the Rural Electrification Agency and the Ministry of Agriculture.

In addition, he noted, to other teacher-training programs and the Nigeria-Korea Model School in the Federal Capital Territory.

Additionally, to support school innovation in terms of communication technology and teacher education, we have started a smart school project, one in each of the six geopolitical zones, according to Mr. Young-Chae.

The FCT has a lot of arable land for agricultural development, Mr. Wike noted on Monday when hosting the Turkish ambassador, Hidayet Bayrakter. He asserted that cooperation with Turkiye would be advantageous to both nations.

The minister stated that the FCT Administration has an open-door policy and would be glad to speak with Turkish companies about the Abuja metro rail project.

However, Mr. Wike argued that the short-term, single-entry visa policy may not be adequate to promote economic relationships and called for a reassessment of Turkish visa regulations.

In order to build the second phase of the Abuja metro line system, Mr. Bayrakter requested the FCTA’s assistance. The diplomat claimed that Turkiye has competent construction firms with knowledge of building suspension bridges and railroads.
