Vice President Yemi Osinbajo on Wednesday at the State House Banquet Hall, Abuja, proposed a toast to the Socialist Republic of Vietnam and the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
The vice president’s toast was proposed at a dinner organised in honour of the Deputy Prime Minister of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, Prof. Vuong Hue.
Osinbajo, had earlier, at the Presidential Villa, received Hue and his team and witnessed the signing and exchange of the Memorandum of Understanding on waiver of visa requirements for holders of valid diplomatic and official passports.
The vice president, during the toast said that Hue was his long-lost brother as both of them were born in the same year and the same month- March, 1957.
Osinbajo added that he and Hue were both lecturers and professors.
He said that Nigeria and Vietnam had maintained long-standing diplomatic relations since 1976 but no high-level engagements.
