The Governor-General noted that the world would achieve more by de-emphasising geographical differences and refocusing its energy on the commonality of humanity, pointing out that from space one can only see an earth without borders.
Payette said her visit was about showcasing “youth, innovation and technology,” adding that Canada would like to partner with Nigeria in the ongoing diversification of the economy.
