The Secretary-General of Niger Republic Community in Nigeria, Mallam Sidilghabit Tarwaq, has commended the warm relationship between Nigeria and the Niger Republic.

Tarwaq made the commendation while speaking with newsmen, yesterday, in Kaduna on Nigeria’s 62nd Independence anniversary.

He said Nigeria has been a great partner that has supported the Niger Republic in various ways.

Tarwaq noted: “Nigeria, being the giant of Africa, and the most populated black nation on earth, it becomes mandatory for me to join Nigerians to celebrate its independence, to strengthen the good relationship between the two countries.

“Nigeria and the Niger Republic have many things in common, which makes the two countries have a close relationship.”

He congratulated Nigerians on the anniversary and prayed for peaceful elections in 2023.

He said: “As 2023 general elections approach, I appeal to Nigerians for the peaceful conduct of campaigns while encouraging youth participation in the general elections.”

Similarly, a Togolese, Mr. John Barry, and some Africans residing in northern Nigeria, congratulated the country for attaining 62 years of independence.

They called for more peace and unity in Africa and appealed to African youths to join in developing the continent, rather than escaping to Europe and other countries for greener pastures.
