The Bangladesh high commissioner mentioned that Bangladesh and Nigeria enjoy friendly and cordial bilateral relations, and both are fighting the pandemic which has brought the countries closer.

He expressed his satisfaction over the symbolic gesture which coincided with the year-long program to celebrate the birth centenary of the Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman (Mujib Year).

Boss Mustapha thanked the Bangladesh high commissioner for the friendly gesture of the government of Bangladesh while informing that Bangladesh and Nigeria are working closely in many areas, including in the field of defence.
