The Ambassador of Nigeria to Malaysia, Dr Hajara Ibrahim Salim, officially presented his Letters of Credence to the Head of State and the King of Malaysia, Yang di-Pertuan Agong, Sultan Abdullah Al Mustapha Billah Shah.
According to a statement released by the Nigerian Embassy in Kular Lumpur, Salim, who was appointed High Commissioner in Malaysia and Brunei in February, was unable to submit his letters due to restrictions and measures put in place to reduce the effect of COVID. 19 in the nation.
The statement said the ambassador and the king discussed issues of mutual benefit and reaffirmed their commitment to strengthen bilateral relations between the two nations.
“Ambassador Hajara Salim, accompanied to the ceremony by the head of the Chancellery, Musa Godowoli, and other embassy officials, marks her first official engagement in the country.
“The Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary Ambassador is also expected to present a simultaneous letter of accreditation to the Sultan of Brunei at a later date,” the statement added.
