Nigeria’s Representative to Belize Touts Relationship

Janet Olisa

Janet Olisa was one of three ambassadors who presented her credentials to Governor General Sir Colville Young on Monday in Belmopan. She is the appointed High Commissioner of Nigeria to Belize, but is officially based in Jamaica. Today, she briefed the local press on the development of the relationship between the two countries, particularly in the area of technical assistance.


Janet Olisa, Nigerian High Commissioner to Belize

“Nigeria-Belize is a very important relationship for us, in the sense that we are one people that has passed over the centuries through the movement in the Trans-Atlantic and we are grateful to God for the ability to reconnect. And Nigeria-Belize is further ensured through a technical agreement which enables Nigeria to provide technical assistance to Belize in whatever field, whichever sector that the Government of Belize so chooses. And this is to enhance development; that we all develop, because the Nigerian Government – it doesn’t really matter which administration – but it has always been our main core foreign policy that we bring other countries in our South-South cooperation apart with us. We don’t believe that one country should be a superpower while others are struggling. We believe in co-existing, we believe in helping those who need help and for us to move together and co-exist in a very harmonious way and that led to the technical assistance being provided.”
