SAN FRANCISCO, March 29, (THEWILL) - President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan said Thursday in Abuja that his administration is fully aware of the importance of education and is therefore doing everything possible to ensure that the nation’s youths are properly trained to contribute more significantly to national development.

Speaking at an audience with the non-resident Ambassador of Macedonia to Nigeria, Mr. Darko Angelov, President Jonathan expressed the Federal Government’s appreciation of scholarships offered by the Macedonian Government for the training of some Nigerian youths in Macedonia.

The President said that he was happy to welcome Mr. Angelov who was at the Presidential Villa to present his letters of credence as Macedonia’s first-ever Ambassador to Nigeria, adding that he looked forward to the consolidation and expansion of bilateral cooperation between Nigeria and Macedonia.

He also assured Mr. Angelov that the Federal Government will work with him and his government to establish a proper framework for the enhancement of bilateral trade and economic relations.

Mr. Angelov told President Jonathan that his country was very keen on developing existing relations with Nigeria because of Nigeria’s importance on the African continent.
