Description

In November 2007, China donated over NGN 70 million worth of equipment for controlling and fighting the avian flu to Nigeria's agriculture and water resource departments. The equipment was received by Dr. Abba Ruma, Minister of Agriculture and Water Resources. The equipment includes biological sitting cabinets, temperature freezers, an incinerator, and disinfectant equipment. The gesture marked the second instance China has offered medical assistance to Nigeria this month. At the beginning of November, the Chinese government donated 529,000 doses of anti-malaria drugs in various forms to the Nigerian health administration.
