President Muhammadu Buhari on Sunday during a meeting with Ethiopian Prime Minister, Abiy Ahmed, at the Headquarters of African Union in Addis Ababa, urged the leader to stay focused on keeping the country in spite of difficulties, as Nigeria would continue to support them.

Buhari commended the efforts of the Prime Minister in maintaining peace and unity in the country, and dedication to ensuring fairness and justice in development.

In a statement by Buhari spokesman, Femi Adesina, said Ahmed had provided strong leadership for the country, encouraging him to sustain the good work and development.

The Prime Minister thanked Buhari for the support to the country over the years on national and personal endeavours, particularly in encouraging unity and stability. Ahmed said the African continent had been slow in growth due to conflicts, adding that the larger economies, like Nigeria and Ethiopia, should provide the leadership that will deepen progress and prosperity on the continent.

He said the resurgence of coups on the continent could further weaken institutions and reverse the gains of democracy, appreciating Buhari for his position on zero tolerance for military interference in governance.

Ahmed said collective and visionary leadership would move Africa forward.
