Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday said Nigeria is ready to extend a helping hand to South Sudan towards the political and economic stability of the country.
President Buhari made the promise in Addis Ababa during a bilateral meeting with President Salva Kiir of South Sudan.
Buhari further assured the full support of Nigeria to put all efforts into bringing long-term stability and prosperity to the entire continent.
‘Nigeria will contribute its quota as much as possible to the development of South Sudan. Take us into confidence and ask us what we can do,’’ Buhari told the South Sudanese leader.
The President expressed concern that as long as Libya remained unstable, the proliferation of arms and the problems in the Sahel would continue.
