Nigeria Pledges Support For Burundi

President Muhammadu Buhari and President Evariste Ndayishimiye of Republic of Burundi met Tuesday on the margins of the 76th United Nations General Assembly holding in New York, United States of America, with Nigeria pledging to provide assistance to the brother African country.

“We will be proactive, and give support to the best of our abilities,” President Buhari promised.

The Burundian President assured that his country was out of conflict, “there is now peace and reconciliation, and we have vast opportunities to exploit.”

He said his country was looking for support of friendly nations in the areas of oil supply, agriculture, mines, and several others, which Nigerian experts can provide.
