Buhari applauds Guinea Bissau's presidency

20 September 2015, 15:32

Abuja - President Muhammadu Buhari on Saturday lauded President Jose Mario Vaz and the people of Guinea-Bissau for the peaceful resolution of the recent political crisis that left the country without a government for 37 days.

A statement issued in Abuja by the president’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, also quoted President Buhari as applauding the laudable role played in the resolution of the crisis by his Special Envoy, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo.

Obasanjo was similarly adopted by ECOWAS as the regional body’s Special Envoy on the political dispute in Guinea-Bissau.

The president thanked Obasanjo for a job well-done and commended the ECOWAS Authority of Heads of State and Government for its steadfast commitment to peace, security and progress in Guinea-Bissau and the entire West African region.

President Buhari welcomed President Jose Mario Vaz’s acceptance of the solution to the recent political crisis proffered by Obasanjo and congratulated Mr Carlos Correia on his emergence as the new Prime Minister of Guinea-Bissau.

He urged President Vaz and Prime Minister Correia to work together harmoniously to move their country forward as envisaged by authors of the Guinea-Bissau constitution which divided the executive arm of government into the Presidency and the Premiership.

President Buhari implored all stakeholders in the development and progress of Guinea-Bissau to desist from any further actions that could jeopardise the stability of the country and its democratic future
