President Muhammadu Buhari and President Evariste Ndayishimiye of Republic of Burundi met Tuesday on the margins of the 76th United Nations General Assembly holding in New York, United States of America, with Nigeria pledging to provide assistance to the brother African country. 

“We will be proactive, and give support to the best of our abilities,” President Buhari promised.
