President Muhammadu Buhari has stated that Nigeria will support the Republic of Burundi in various ways as needed in the spirit of African unity and brotherhood.
The President addressed Tuesday at State House in Abuja, while greeting President Evariste Ndayishimiye’s Special Envoy, who arrived with a message.
Burundi’s Minister of Finance, Budget, and Economic Planning, Hon. Audace Niyonzima, said his President wished Nigerians and President Buhari a Happy New Year and wished the country luck in the next general elections in February and March.
“We pray that the polls would be peaceful and successful, so that Nigeria would maintain her reputation as a bastion of peace and stability,” the Special Envoy said.
On request for assistance in the area of energy provision, particularly fuel, by the Burundi leader, President Buhari said he knows what it feels like for a country to suffer from energy shortage, and promised that he would get the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited to look into the request.
President Buhari said he was looking forward to the polls, and retirement, since he had satisfied the constitutionally required two terms to be in office.
