The Nigerian government has ordered to shut down Taiwan’s office in the nation’s capital, Abuja, and move its trade mission to Lagos, Taiwan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) said Thursday.

On Wednesday, Nigeria’s Foreign Affairs Minister Geoffrey Onyeama announced the move in a joint press conference with his Chinese counterpart, Wang Yi,…He said

  Taiwan will stop enjoying any privileges because it is not a country that is recognised under international law and under the position we have taken internationally we recognise the people of China. “Taiwan will not have any diplomatic representation in Nigeria and also they will be moving to Lagos to the extent that they function as a trade mission with a skeletal staff.

Foreign Ministry’s spokeswoman Eleanor Wang said the ministry has lodged a formal protest reprimanding Nigerian government for such “unreasonable act.”
