Greece has donated about one million doses of the Johnson and Johnson COVID-19 vaccine from Greece to Nigeria
A delegation from the European country led by its Minister of Foreign Affairs, Nikolaos Dendias, disclosed on Monday in Abuja.
Announcing this during a meeting with the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama, and other Nigerian government officials, Dendias said that Nigeria and Greece have enjoyed a favourable bond over the years and that his country was even willing to expand the relationship.
He said that such an expansion would culminate in the signing of Memoranda of Understanding on various issues affecting both countries.
Speaking at the meeting, Onyeama explained that Nigeria had enjoyed a smooth partnership with Greece in the area of defence.
He said that the current administration was willing to expand its partnership with Greece, especially in the areas of agriculture and infrastructure.
The donation is coming as the Nigerian Government moves to make sure more citizens are vaccinated against the pandemic.
