Nigeria has potentials to lead the world — Israeli envoy

Israeli Ambassador to Nigeria, Mr. Moshe Ram, has posited that Nigeria has the material and human resources to be the leading country in the world. Ambassador Ram said this in Osogbo, Osun State, yesterday when he called on Governor Olagunsoye Oyinlola.
He said with the endowment of natural resources, Nigeria could be atop if the resources were properly harnessed.

Ram opined that what his nation, Israel, lacked in natural resources, it has in human resources, which, according to him, had been used to turn round its fortune.

With commitment and development of the educational sector, the Ambassador said Nigerians too could positively change the face of their country.

Ram, who commended Oyinlola for the development of the state, said the country could better be appreciated when every part is touched.

“Nigeria can better be appreciated when one visits other parts outside Abuja. This is a great country.”
In his remarks, Oyinlola noted that his administration’s partnership with Israel had been successful.
According to him, no nation could be developed without recourse to education, adding that his administration has given adequate attention to the sector.

The governor added that a number of exchange programmes had taken place between the state and Israel in the areas of education, agriculture and others.

He said efforts would always be made to foster broader unity for the benefit of the country and Israel.
Meanwhile, a memorandum of understanding has been signed between an Israeli firm and the state on waste management conversion worth $10millon. vanguard online
