On 22 June 2016, His Excellency Mr. A.Y. MADOBI, the Counselor in charge of Political and Educational Affairs, Embassy of the Federal Republic of Nigeria in Japan paid a courtesy call to the President of Tottori University.
The President Teshima said that “we have so far accepted about 10 graduate students in Master’s and Ph.D. programs from Nigeria. In addition, we have been regularly hosting JICA group training participants and visiting professors from your country. We currently do not have an official academic exchange agreement with any higher learning institution in Nigeria but we do hope to establish such a relationship in the future.”
Following the meeting, His Excellency Mr. A.Y. MADOBI met with students from Nigeria, and kindly gave a Summit Lecture to students and staff of Tottori University after that.
