Buhari pledges support to S/ Leone stability
President Muhammadu Buhari has assured the President of Sierra Leone, Mr Julius Maada Bio, of Nigeria’s support, including military, as they work towards a stable and improved economy.
The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity Malam Garba Shehu, in a statement, quoted Buhari as giving the assurance at the State House in Abuja yesterday, while receiving the President Bio.
Buhari congratulated Bio on the successful elections and the transitions that ushered in a new government in that country.
“We will continually stand by you to ensure stability in your country. We believe security in the West Coast region, Africa and the world should be a collective concern,’’ he said.
Bio said his country remained grateful to Nigeria for the brotherly role it played in ensuring an end to protracted civil war in the country, and the successful political transitions since then.
