In a significant development, the Chinese Government has pledged to support the Nigerian Academy for Cultural Studies (NACUS) with technology, focusing on the newly introduced cultural technology course. This commitment was made by LI Xuda, Counselor at the Chinese Embassy in Nigeria and Director of the China Cultural Center, during a meeting with Otunba Biodun Ajiboye, Executive Secretary/CEO of the National Institute for Cultural Orientation (NICO) in Abuja on Tuesday, July 9, 2024.

This development is expected to create job opportunities for Nigerians across the country.
