The Malaysia’s High Commissioner to Nigeria, Amb. Datuk Lim Juay Jin, has disclosed that about 13,000 Nigerians are currently studying at various levels in educational institutions in Malaysia.
He made this known during an interview with newsmen on Wednesday on the sideline of the flag hoisting ceremony to mark the 59th Independence anniversary of Malaysia.
According to him, Malaysian educational process is a stepping stone for a lot of Nigerians who want to pursue their education further as Nigerian students in Malaysia made up most of the number of Africans studying in the country.
He attributed this to the affordability of cost of study, good standards and the English speaking environment in Malaysia. He further stated that Nigerian students studying in Malaysia are actually promoting bilateral relations between the two countries, though in an informal way.
