Nigeria and Russia, in 2016, signed an agreement for the construction of a multifunctional nuclear center in Nigeria. “We are confident that the development of these nuclear technologies would strengthen Nigeria’s position as one of the leading economies of the African continent,” the envoy told journalists in Abuja at a roundtable on the bilateral engagements between both countries in 2017.

Udovinchenko disclosed that Nigeria and Russia’s partnership on the development of nuclear technologies started in 2009 when the two countries reached an agreement on cooperation and establishment of the technology in Nigeria.
