The Group Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer, Prince Jacob Momoh has said Jamub Group of Companies is opened to doing business with Equatorial Guinea thereby ready to immediately begin a working relationship with the country through her embassy in Nigeria.
Prince Momoh stated this in Jamub Group corporate office, Abuja where he received a delegation from the Embassy of Equatorial Guinea. The delegation was led by the Ambassador, Ihetrancisco Edu Ngva Mangue, other members of the delegation included, Leocadi Eyano Nguelia, the Financial officer, and Maria Juanita Abesco Ondo, the Secretary to the Ambassador, among others.

Responding the Ambassador Ihetrancisco Edu said his visit was meant to strengthen the relationship between Nigeria and Equatorial Guinea, especially in ways to promote inter-cultural relationships between both countries.
“Nigeria’s population index is quite high, It is impressive to have in history the University of Ibadan as one of the top five ancient schools in the world to date and there is even a rise in the number of universities in Nigeria. Nigeria and Equatorial Guinea are just a stone throw away” he noted.
According to him, “the distance between Nigeria to Equatorial Guinea is about 50mins by air while from Portharcourt is 25 mins. Nigeria University of Ibadan is among the top 5 ancient universities, thereafter Nigeria has created approximately 200 universities. It is still unfortunate that Africans will leave their countries to travel a long distance to China to study. I find it strange and rare that been neighboring countries, we barely know ourselves and that’s the narrative I want to change, I want both countries to have stronger ties. They use black men to get what they want in Africa after which the white men come into the picture. I am opened for business whether your country goes to Equatorial Guinea or start a relationship here, we are opened to business to empower South-South corporation.” He noted.
