More Nigerian students should consider going to France — Ambassador
The French Ambassador to Nigeria, Jérôme Pasquier, made this known in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Monday in Abuja.
Mr Pasquier said Nigeria and France would partner in such areas as climate change, education and fight against terrorism.
He urged Nigerians wanting to school abroad to consider France as priority place for their studies, in order to enhance their learning of French Language.
“We really will like more students to come to France; we are very active in promoting knowledge of French Language studies traditionally in Nigeria.
“Observably, students when thinking of where to go abroad often think about U.K., U.S., mostly because of language, but there is need for them to have a rethink.
“We have to convince them, there are many good universities in France and it is not difficult to learn French Language and even study there,” Mr Pasquier said.
