Olusegun Obasanjo to attend Chinese New Year Gala Celebration in Nigeria~NEWSEXTRA



 
The Chinese New Year celebrations, also known as the Spring Festival, is the biggest Festival in China and also the most colorful of all events with traditional celebration all over the world.
 
The Former President of Nigeria, His Excellency, Olusegun Obasanjo would be giving the welcome speech in New Year Gala of “One World One Spring , HuaXing Shines”, hosted by Chinese Community in Nigeria. 
 
12 February 2021 is the traditional Lunar New Year in China, and also marks the celebration of the 50th Anniversary of Establishing Diplomatic ties between Nigeria and China. It is truly as remarkable as the two countries’ National Day, same on 1st October. 
 
Since the 1960’s, Chinese entrepreneurs and expatriates have played very important roles in Nigeria industrialization and business prosperity especially in Kano and Lagos. In fact, pioneers from China have come to this wonderful country even more earlier than half century ago. For now, China is an important trading partner and major foreign investor in Nigeria. Over the past decades, it has been no secret that the Chinese Community in Nigeria has been giving back to the local communities in forms of grants, scholarships to students, donations and many more. This has been a culture that has come to stay over the years to share love with the local communities. A very good example is the annual Young Ministers Event which reaches out to countless students with the sole purpose of supporting young growing Nigerian children as they are the future of tomorrow. Schools, orphanage homes and many other institutions were also reached out too. As a matter of fact, the 2020 Covid-19 Pandemic did not stop this, the community as always seen Nigeria as a home, and its people also as theirs. Their outstanding efforts appreciated widely in both country.

In addition to this, the efforts and success of cultural exchange promoting as Huaxing Arts Troupe takes the role of understanding between two countries, be it Chinese Culture or the Nigerian Culture. The troupe has made itself a haven for all locals to enjoy culture on both sides ranging from Chinese traditionalh performances to Nigerian indigenous songs and performance and to School Walk-ins. 
To celebrating the coming Year of the Ox in China, event will be streamed online due to the second wave of Covid-19 pandemic.
