Nigerians in China to meet Jonathan, want consular office in Guangzhou


AHEAD of President Goodluck Jonathan’s visit to China next week, Nigerians in China have planned to meet the visiting President on the need for consular office in the Guangzhou province.

The Nigerians resident in Chinese’ second largest city, Guangzhou, said the visit would enable President Jonathan to see the tortuous journey Nigerians living in the city have to embark upon to process working and travelling documents in the Shanghai consulate office.

The group in a statement yesterday said while they eagerly await President Jonathan’s visit, they also have high expectations that his coming would bring the desired end and ease their suffering.

Managing Director of Blue Diamond Logistics, Festus Mbisiogu, was confident that the President’s visit would produce the much awaited consular office in Guangzhou and ease the challenge of traveling an entire day to process document.[The Guardian Nigeria]
