…Says Nigeria’ll remain at forefront of peace efforts in Africa
Meanwhile, President Muhammadu Buhari has stated that all efforts to achieve political stability and maintain peace in Africa will continue to receive Nigeria’s full support.
Speaking at an audience with special envoys of President Pierre Nkurunziza of Burundi in Abuja yesterday, Buhari said that under his leadership, Nigeria will remain at the forefront of efforts to achieve enduring peace, security and progress in all African nations.
This, the President said in a statement by his senior Special Assistant on Media, Garba Shehu, was because whatever happens elsewhere in Africa affects Nigeria directly or indirectly.
Buhari also declared that African leaders must do their best to achieve greater peace, political stability and security within their countries so as to give more attention to the urgent task of improving the living conditions of their people.
Thanking the envoys, Maj.-Gen. Evariste Ndayishimiye and Ambassador Dieudonne Kwizera, for briefing him on recent political developments in Burundi, Buhari expressed the hope that all stakeholders in the country will resolve their differences peacefully and learn to work together for the development of their country.
He welcomed ongoing efforts by President Nkurunziza towards peace and national reconciliation in Burundi.
