The Ministry of Foreign Affairs wishes to advise that, in a virtual meeting held on 31st May, 2021, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, the Hon. Darren A. Henfield MP, received the Copie d’Usage of High Commissioner- designate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria to the Bahamas, H.E. Benaoyagha Bernard Mese Okoyen .
In a brief meeting held after the Minister received the Copie d’Usage, both sides acknowledged the friendship and cordial relations between The Bahamas and Nigeria. Both sides agreed on the need to continue the deepening of relations, for which technical meetings will be held during the course of the year.
While the presentation of the Copie d’Usage will allow the High Commissioner-designate to undertake activities at the functional level, he will present his Letters of Credence formally to the Governor-General at a later date.
