Japan pledges token $413,000 aid for Nigeria

President Muhammadu Buhari’s visit to Japan has been rewarded with a token aid of $413,000 as Prime Minister Shinzo Abe announced some support for Nigeria’s Defence College and the public health sector.

Abe made the aid package known on Thursday at a meeting in Yokohama with President Buhari, on the sideline of the Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD7).

Mr Abe pledged a $300,000 support for Nigeria’s Defence College as well as 12 million Yen(about $113,000) for the country’s public health sector.

This is however exclusive of the aid package Nigeria stands to reap under TICAD7.
