The Nigeria News Agency reports that the beneficiary of the Chinese project, Girls’ Secondary School Dutse performed a Chinese fan dance and Girls’ Secondary School, Bianch, presented a Chinese song to mark the cultural day .

Otunba Olusegun Runsewe, Director- General, National Council For Arts and Crafts (NCAC), says he is looking forward to a stronger relationship with the Chinese government and Nigeria in the aspect of culture.

According to him, the relationship between China and Nigeria has been years long and the Chinese government has trained many Nigerians in several skills.

He also mentioned that currently the Chinese government had invited six Nigerians to China for its skills acquisition programme .

Runsewe, therefore, added that Government was impressed with the relationship between the two countries.

NAN also reports that the Director-General of National Council for Arts and Culture was presented with an award from Chinese Embassy for his contributions and his relationship with the people of China.
