The Ambassador of the Arab Republic of Egypt to Nigeria, Assem Hanafi Elseify has disclosed that over 10,000 Nigerians are currently studying in various institutions of higher learning in Egypt, a development he attributed to the excellent relations between Nigeria and Egypt developed over time. Elseify also described the partnership between Nigeria and his country, Egypt as one that is a worthy example of how cooperation among countries should be in Africa and beyond. He said cooperation between the two countries in almost all spheres of Human endeavor has brought about positive development in both countries, also conveyed President Abdelfattah al-Sisi”s “Sincere wishes for the speedy recovery of President Muhammadu Buhari and swift and safe return to Nigeria soon”. He was speaking, at an event held to commemorate the 65th Independence Anniversary of the Arab Republic of Egypt in Abuja. “We have about 10,000 Nigerian students studying in Egypt. He said, “Relationship between the two countries has been cordial, many Nigerians have received training in different fields in Egypt. “We have so many Nigerian students studying in universities in Egypt. We are mustering for more and there is always room for improvement. We have about 10,000 Nigerian students studying in Egypt”. While speaking on other areas of partnership between the two countries, the ambassador said, “There are several important Egyptian investment and partnerships,  particularly The Arab Contractors in whose construction we gather today, Egypt Air which flies to three destinations in Nigeria, and the Mansour Group which has a number of projects in Kwara State. “I believe that there is and has always been excellent relations between Egypt and Nigeria, covering important fields like education, medical care, training programs by The Egyptian Agency for Partnership and an ever expanding military and security cooperation, all presenting a commendable model for African and South-South cooperation”, he said. While noting that there is room for enhancing the economic ties between the two countries in order to meet their sustainable development needs and aspirations, the envoy said the two countries through their cooperation have achieved various strides both bilaterally and within the various initiatives of the African Union. Elseify also commended Nigeria’s efforts at tackling  issues of terrorism and development which he said is to a large extent responsible for insecurity in most African countries. “It is though both countries face common and dire challenges of poverty eradication, job creation, social welfare and good governance. There are also the evil scourge of terrorism, and conflicts affecting many Neigbhouring states”, he said. “But it is with enormous sense of resolve and determination that both governments are tackling those challenges,  including, an unrelenting and by no means easy pursuit for stability in our two regions, progress in combating extremist groups and more serious attention to diversifying the national economies and creating an enabling environment for doing business  and stimulating growth and investment”, he added. The ambassador disclosed that Egypt as part of measures to correct the Macri-economic imbalance in Egypt took some bold steps which is impacting favourably on her fiscal and monetary policies. Also speaking Chairman of the Arab Organization for industrialization, lieutenant General Abdel-Aziz Seifeldin (Rtd.), said Egypt apart from using the military in combating terrorism has also adopted other means such as deradicalization and pursuit of development to tackle poverty in the country.

Is it REALLY because of the EXCELLENT relations between Egypt and Nigeria that we have over 10,000 Nigerian students in Egypt - OR is it because of the POOR standard of OUR places of HIGHER LEARNING.

Let's be truthful.

I bet we DO NOT have 10,000 Egyptians studying IN Nigeria!!!!!!
