NEWS REPORT

Obasanjo wants Nigeria & Hungary to collaborate in agriculture, small scale industry
By our correspondent
Chief Olusegun Obasanjo
Nigerian ex- president, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, eventually honoured the invitation extended to him by the organisers of a two-day conference summit on Africa which took place on May 19 and 20 respectively at Zigmond király College in Budapest.

The conference meeting tagged Budapest Africa Summit VI invited several speakers to discuss the main theme: Challenges and Responses-Hungary for the Success of Africa.

Water, electricity, environmental, agriculture, business and investment are some of the topics deliberated upon by numerous speakers who are experts in their respective fields.

Obasanjo, who was represented last year by his political associate, enjoined Hungarians to partner with Nigeria in the areas of agriculture and Small Medium Enterprise (SME) which he argued could benefit both countries. He himself is believed to have Hungarians as agriculture specialists developing his Ota farm situated in Ogun State, Nigeria. 

He also used the forum to praise NGOs saying, they should continue with good work to keep the government on their toes since governments come and go.

Some of our sources explained that Obasanjo, who ruled Nigeria as a military head of state in the 70's and then as civilian president from 1999 to 2007, used the occasion to attend to some other matters close to his heart.

The controversial politician, whose party (PDP) suffered a substantial setback in the recent elections but still in power, first came to Hungary in 2001 in his capacity as the president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria during which he was presented with the symbolic Key of Hungary by the then Mayor of Budapest, Demszky Gábor enabling him to enter Hungary without a visa.

Love the article on Gaddafi
We must rise above tribalism & divide & rule of the colonialist who stole & looted our treasure & planted their puppets to lord it over us..they alone can decide on whosoever is performing & the one that is corrupt..but the most corrupt nations are the western countries that plunder the resources of other nations & make them poorer & aid the rulers to steal & keep such ill gotten wealth in their country..yemen,syria etc have killed more than gadhafi but its not A̷̷̴ good investment for the west(this is laughable)because oil is not in these countries..when obasanjo annihilated the odi people in rivers state, they looked away because its in their favour & interest..one day!

Hello from
Johannesburg
I was amazed to find a website for Africans in Hungary.
Looks like you have quite a community there. Here in SA we have some three million Zimbabweans living in exile and not much sign of going home ... but in Hungary??? Hope to meet you on one of my trips to Europe; was in Steirmark Austria near the Hungarian border earlier this month. Every good wish for 2011. Geoff in Jo'burg

I'm impressed by
ANH work but...
Interesting interview...
I think from what have been said, the Nigerian embassy here seem to be more concern about its nationals than we are for ourselves. Our complete disregard for the laws of Hungary isn't going to help Nigeria's image or going to promote what the Embassy is trying to showcase. So if the journalists could zoom-in more focus on Nigerians living, working and studying here in Hungary than scrutinizing the embassy and its every move, i think it would be of tremendous help to the embassy serving its nationals better and create more awareness about where we live . Taking the issues of illicit drugs and forged documents as typical examples.. there are so many cases of Nigerians been involved. But i am yet to read of it in e.news. So i think if only you and your journalists could write more about it and follow up on the stories i think it will make our nationals more aware of what to expect. I wouldn't say i am not impressed with your work but you need to be more of a two way street rather than a one way street . Keep up the good work... Sylvia
