Is there anything wrong with either china's ties in nigeria or china offering help to nigeria?  They offered satellite assistance and I'm not sure what else.

I'm pleasantly surprised that china is getting involved.

So you're a rare exception.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

Abuja: China and Britain have offered to deploy their advanced tracking technologies to support Nigeria's security agencies engaged in the search and rescue operation of abducted schoolgirls, a spokesperson said Wednesday.

China has offered to assist in the effort to rescue the abducted girls, Xinhua quoted Reuben Abati, the special adviser to the Nigerian president on media and publicity, as saying in Abuja.

"In talks with President Jonathan earlier today, Premier Li Keqiang promised that his country will make any useful information acquired by its satellites and intelligence services available to Nigeria's security agencies," he said.

Chinese Premier Li Keqiang is on an official visit to Nigeria. "Premier Li Keqiang assured the president that China will support Nigeria's fight against terrorism in every possible way, including the training of military personnel for anti-insurgency operations, " Abati added.

Abati spoke on the efforts by the government to locate and rescue the girls abducted from the Government Girls Secondary School in Chibok of northeast Borno state.

He also said that upon request by President Goodluck Jonathan, British Prime Minister David Cameron has assured to deploy his country's intelligence gathering resources in support of the search and rescue operations.

He said the Nigerian leader spoke with the British Prime Minister on phone after meeting with Chinese Premier Li Keqiang.

Sure. There are terrible things happening all over the world.
This has not been getting the attention it deserves because there is nothing in it for the capitalists.
Now that the capitalists see a PR opportunity they are becoming involved.

So why is china getting involved?

Are you admitting now that they are capitalists?

Do you know the trade between the countries that vowed to help nigeria?  including china as stated above?

You're going to have to come to grips with globalization robert.  China is all over africa.  Does that make them horrible?  I don't think so.  But if it is someone from the west doing the exact same thing...you see evil.

Maybe you need to take a step back.  I thought the opening article was very objective and fair.  It was clearly stated that ties with china are beneficial to the country.  

Trade is beneficial to any country.

And everyone does it.  I just don't get where you are coming from.
