Nigeria's president, Muhammadu Buhari is on a five-day state visit to China, which began on Monday. He's expected to conclude negotiations over a 2 billion US dollar low-interest loan with the Chinese government. The money will help Nigeria fund its infrastructure projects, as well as finance a deficit on its 3 trillion Naira, or 15 billion US dollar, budget. Activities will be held to celebrate the 45th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties. The visit is an important one for Nigeria. Our Lagos correspondent Deji Badmus told us about Nigeria's economic situation, and how working with China can benefit the West African nation. Earlier we spoke to CCTV's Su Yuting in Beijing for more on President Buhari's schedule during this state visit.
