Presidency denies cutting ties with Taiwan

Nigeria’s  Presidency has dismissed what it called  ‘incorrect media reports’ that Nigeria has cut ties with Taiwan.

Senior Special Assistant on Media to the President, Garba Shehu in a statement on Thursday said the official relationship between Nigeria and Taiwan has been at the level of trade representation and this has not changed.

Nigeria’s reaction followed  complaints from Taipei to relocate its representative office in Abuja to Lagos, a request Taiwan sees as more pressure by China to isolate it.

Beijing regards Taiwan as a renegade province.
