After tasting both systems of government, President Muhammadu Buhari, yesterday affirmed multiparty system of democracy as a better option to military rule.
On the Peace Summit being planned for Abuja, to bring all African countries together before the end of this administration, President Buhari pledged Nigeria’s support, “relative to resources, to help in stabilising the neighbouring countries.”
Decrying the problem in the Sahel belt as of great concern to Africa, the President said the agriculture and businesses have been negatively affected.
Chairperson of the Federation in Africa, Dr. Katherine Rigney and Chairman, Universal Peace Federation International (UPFI), Dr. Thomas Walsh, said they believed the forthcoming summit in Nigeria “will top them all,” having held similar meetings in the past in Niger Republic, Senegal, Sao Tome and Principe, South Africa, among others.
Buhari is billed to be given the Leadership and Good Governance Award, “as appreciation of the fantastic results you’ve brought to Nigeria, and a celebration of your anti-corruption credentials” during the Abuja Summit.
