President Muhammadu Buhari has said Nigeria is always willing to extend a helping hand to the Republic of South Sudan towards political and economic stability.
This is as he expresses concerns over the political instability of Libya, saying that so long as the country remains unstable, the proliferation of arms and light weapons in the Sahel region would persist.
The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina, in a statement disclosed that President Buhari said this on Tuesday in Addis Ababa during a bilateral meeting with President Salva Kiir of South Sudan.
The President who assured the full support of Nigeria to all efforts to bring long-term stability and prosperity to the continent said Nigeria would contribute its quota as much as possible to the development of South Sudan.
In his remarks, President Kirr, who acknowledged Nigeria’s leadership role in Africa, appreciated the country’s effort in the liberation struggle of South Sudan.
