– The Nigerian Military has expressed its readiness to partner with the Ukrainian government in military technology and equipment.

The Chief of Defence Staff (CDS), Gen. Abayomi Gabriel Olonisakin, has made this known when the Ambassador of Ukraine to Nigeria, Dr. Valerii Aleksandruk, visited him at the Defence Headquarters in Abuja.

He noted it was the policy of Nigeria to deal directly with governments of countries where it had any interest and promised to study the business proposal submitted by the ambassador on behalf of Ukrainian companies and take stock of areas of interest to the military.

Speaking earlier, Aleksandruk commended the existing bilateral relationship and asked for it to be further strengthened especially in the areas of military and education.

Submitting a business proposal to the CDS, the diplomat disclosed the readiness of Ukrainian companies producing military hardware to make presentations to the Nigerian Armed Forces on equipment that will help Nigeria in its fight against terrorism.

He said the companies were ready to transfer some technology to Nigeria and make it a hub to West Africa and other African countries.
