Nigeria will remain at forefront of efforts to achieve peace in Africa – Buhari


President Muhammadu Buhari said Wednesday in Abuja 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, President 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, was because whatever happens elsewhere in Africa affects Nigeria directly or indirectly.

President Buhari declared that African leaders must all do their best to achieve greater peace, political stability and security within their countries so that they can 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, President 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.
