By George George Idowu

In a significant move aimed at improving water supply and power generation, the Federal Government of Nigeria and the Angolan counterpart have forged a formal collaboration towards water supply and power generation across the two boarders.

This new development was reported on Wednesday during a meeting between Dr. Jose Bamoquina, the Angolan Ambassador to Nigeria, and Nigerian officials led by Prof. Joseph Utsev, the Minister of Water Resources and Sanitation, and his state counterpart in Abuja.

Utsev stressed the importance of this partnership, emphasizing the exchange of technical expertise and knowledge crucial for advancing water supply and hydropower generation, ultimately enhancing citizens’ lives.

Highlighting the global need for universal access to clean water, the Minister welcomed Bamoquina’s invitation to visit Angola, aiming to bolster collaboration across various mutually beneficial sectors.

Bamoquina, on his own part, elaborated on the visit’s objective, emphasizing increased collaboration to harness both nations’ abundant mineral resources, particularly water and electricity.

Angola’s potential to export electricity and plans for utilizing Nigeria’s technical expertise in expanding major dams were also discussed, with a focus on providing potable water and enhancing irrigation farming for the Angolan population

The Minister of Information and National Orientation, Mohammed Idris, underscored Nigeria’s commitment to deepening bilateral relations with Angola.

He highlighted the shared membership in international organizations and emphasized Nigeria’s support for Angola’s domestic and foreign aspirations.

Both countries, as significant producers of crude oil in Africa, are poised to leverage their natural resources for mutual benefit and the overall development of the continent. As “big brothers” in Africa, Nigeria and Angola aspire to meet the high expectations placed upon them.
