Nigeria announced Wednesday the Taiwan office in capital city Abuja will be closed and has urged the officials to move trade mission to Lagos.

China’s official Xinhua News Agency reveals citing Nigerian Minister of Foreign Affairs Geoffrey Onyeama the country is committed to “One-China” policy and Taiwan will not be enjoyed privileges as international law does not recognize it as a country.

About a month ago Nigeria broke off ties with Taiwan to make way for good relationship with China, which has used growing economic and military might to put pressure on Taiwan’s ruling Democratic Progressive Party.

The new government has refused to accept Taiwan is a part of China.

The self-rule island’s new government last year swept the more Beijing-friendly Kuomintang form power.

Meanwhile, China and Nigeria have signed infrastructure development and Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari assured the country will not default it.

China will be investing another $40 in the African country.

Buhari earlier said, “This administration is very serious about infrastructural development. We want rail, road, power, skill acquisition for our people. We ought to have developed beyond this point, but we neglected infrastructure when we had the resources.”
