The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, has said that the maltreatment of Nigerians in China has been resolved between both countries.
The Speaker made this known via his official twitter handle on Wednesday.
Nigerians had on Friday, April 11 protested alleged maltreatment of Nigerians in China due, to the number of Nigerians and other Africans who have tested positive for coronavirus in Guangzhou.
Gbajabiamila said: “I’m glad the matter of maltreatment of Nigerians in China has been sorted out between both countries. The Ambassador has communicated his findings and we hope that moving forward communication will be swift and clear and due process will be observed even where there are allegations of wrongdoing by citizens of other countries.
“It is important that we follow up on this and Nigerians can legitimately go about their business in the People’s Republic of China.
“I spoke with the Acting Consul General, Mr Razak Lawal whose robust defence of the rights of Nigerians in China went viral and I salute the gentleman diplomat for his dedication to duty and his patriotism”.
He added that the Chinese Ambassador to Nigeria had communicated his findings on the issue.
