New York City Mayor to visit Nigeria Sunday
The New York City Mayor, Eric Adams, will arrive in Nigeria on Sunday for a two-day visit as part of his Africa tour. Nigeria’s Consul-General in New York, Amb. Lot Egopija, disclosed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria on Monday in New York.
Egopija disclosed the Mayor would be attending the meeting of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum during the visit.
He said, “He will be visiting the Minister of FCT to commence sister-city relationship between the city of Abuja and New York.”
A sister-city or a twin town relationship is a form of legal or social agreement between two geographically and politically distinct localities aimed at promoting cultural and commercial ties. According to the Consul-General, Eric Adams would also pay a courtesy call on the Minister of Foreign Affairs, as well as meet with the business community in the FCT.
NAN reports that Egopija had in January briefed Adams, at a meeting of African Consuls-General, on areas of interest on the sister-city relationship with New York.
