China-Nigeria Relations Scrutinized

Ventures Africa published on 16 January 2017 a commentary titled "One China: Nigeria's Legacy of Poor Negotiations" by Akinkunmi Akingbade.


The commentary follows Nigeria's recent announcement that it asked the government of Taiwan to move its trade office from the political capital of Abuja to the commercial capital of Lagos. Beijing has been urging such a move for years. The author suggests that Nigeria's "One China" policy and obsession with financing from China has caused it to negotiate poorly with China.
