Ecuadorian Ambassador to Nigeria, Amb. Deopoldo Rovayo, said that Ecuador and Nigeria have agreed to sign a visa-free agreement to strengthen bilateral relations, especially in the communication sector.
Rovavo made the announcement in Abuja on Wednesday when he paid a courtesy visit to the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Amb. Olukunle Bamgbose.
The envoy said, “The purpose of my visit was to further cement the bilateral relations between Ecuador and Nigeria. The two countries have agreed to sign an agreement to enable our citizens to visit one another without a visa. There are approximately about one thousand Nigerians living in Ecuador and the number would continue to rise.”
Bamgbose assured the envoy that the Federal Government would work with Ecuador on how to implement the non-visa agreement.
He said that the two countries agreed on how they could strengthen ties as both nations were witnessing increases in trade.
