Remarks by the Spokesperson of the Embassy of China in Nigeria (April 14th, 2022, Abuja)
2022-04-14 20:47

Our attention has been drawn to the comments and appeals by some Nigerian netizens on “saving the Osun River and the surrounding rivers near Osogbo”. Commentators also accused the mining companies in the area, including those owned by Chinese for causing pollution to the rivers. The Embassy pays keen attention to this emerging matter, and would work together with the Chinese Consulate General in Lagos, to collect vital information, so as to study the matter and have a clear understanding of the situation.

Advocacy for the sustainable development and an environment-friendly society is the solid pursuit of China-Africa all-round cooperation. The Embassy has always guided and supported the Chinese companies and nationals in Nigeria to abide by the laws and regulations of Nigeria, and to implement the local rules and guidances on labor, environment, health and safety, etc, and would continue its efforts on a much more robust, green and sustainable bilateral cooperation, for the benefits of the two countries and two peoples.

Regarding the “water pollution issue”, it would be welcomed if relevant data, picture and analysis report could be sent to the Embassy’s email address at chinaemb_ng@mfa.gov.cn and the Consulate General’s at ng@mofcom.gov.cn, for further assessment and action.
