The Ukrainian Ambassador to Nigeria, Dr Valerii Alesandruk, has said Nigeria has the potential to become a hub for Africa in the area of space development, if she could be determined to launch further into space.
The envoy, who noted that Nigeria was not just only a big country in the African continent but also possesses a lot of potentials and great minds, urged the country to endeavour to establish itself in this regards, adding that Ukraine with her vast expertise in the area of space technology is ready to collaborate with Nigeria.
He said, “Ukraine is very good at space technology and Nigeria is a big country in the continent that needs to develop its space sector.
“Nigeria needs to establish itself and launch more into the space and become hub for Africa in space development”.
He commended Nigerians currently studying in various higher institutions in Ukraine, noting that out of the 3,700 Nigerian travellers issued visas in the last two years, 2014 are students and they are currently doing well.
