PRESIDENT BUHARI EXTOLS LAST SOVIET UNION LEADER, GORBACHEV

President Muhammadu Buhari has sung praises of the last leader of the Soviet Union, Mikhail Gorbachev, who died on Tuesday at the age of 91.

According to the Nigerian President, history will be kind to him for prioritising the interests of the Russians over his political ambition.

Buhari described Gorbachev, as a courageous reformer who will be remembered for years to come because of his immeasurable contributions to world peace and openness in his own once rigidly closed society.

He added that the late Gorbachev was a remarkable gentleman whose reformist agenda had fundamentally changed the Soviet society through his policy of Perestroika and Glasnost, both of which set the stage for economic and political transformation of his own country and that of others in the defunct Soviet Union.

Gorbachev served from 1985 to 1991, helping to transition the US-Soviet relations out of the Cold War.
