The China Civil Engineering Construction Corporation (CCECC) on Thursday handed over a six-block classroom renovated at a cost of 80,000 dollars to the Lagos State Government.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the Chinese company renovated Satellite Junior Secondary School at Abule-Ado, near Lagos as part of its corporate social responsibility.

The Consul-General of the Chinese Consulate, Mr Liu Kan, handed over the building to the Lagos State Government at a ceremony in Lagos.

Liu said the gesture was to promote friendship between China and Nigeria and to boost education standard in Nigeria.

"The project is an important part of China-Nigeria cooperation.

"It was launched to promote cooperation between Chinese and Nigeria and also to promote friendly exchanges between Chinese and Nigerians.

"We strongly believe that children are the flowers of a country and hope of the future.

"And, we know that Nigeria and China pay great importance to education."

According to him, about 251 students out of the 3,974 Nigerians currently studying in China are being sponsored by the Chinese Government.

The consul-general urged young Nigerians to study hard to know things about the world, including China.

The District-General of the CCECC in the Southwest, Mr Li Bing, said the gesture was part of the company's "unwavering commitment" to fulfilling its corporate social responsibilities in its host communities.

Bing expressed optimism that the renovated building would provide good learning environment for students.

The Lagos State Gov. Akinwumi Ambode, represented by the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Education, Mrs Olabisi Ariyo, commended CCECC for renovating the building.

"We appreciate the commitment of the management of CCECC to its corporate social responsibility.

"We will remain committed to supporting the growth of the private sector by providing the enabling environment and promoting investment-friendly policies," she said.
