Guinea President, Umaro Embalo, has reportedly named a street after President Muhammadu Buhari to show appreciation for his support and the fatherly advice he had been receiving from him before and after his inauguration as president of Guinea Bissau.
President Macky Sall of Senegal also commended the way and manner Nigeria is supporting the cost of war against insurgency and terrorist activities in all the Lake Chad Basin areas and also for supporting the efforts of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) toward the restoration of peace and constitutional order in Mali
The Senegalese leader gave the commendation at the end of a dinner meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari and President Umaro Embalo of Guinea Bissau at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, on Thursday night.
“What I can say on Mali is that I did know that ECOWAS was very involved since the beginning (of the political crisis). Of course Mali is one of our great countries in ECOWAS.
“As you know, Mali is under occupation by terrorists, even Niger Republic, and I want to salute the great action of Nigeria against Boko Haram and how Nigeria is supporting the cost of war even in all the Lake Chad Basin area.
“Nigeria is also supporting ECOWAS including Mali, Niger and in Burkina Faso where we have a very serious situation,” President Umaro was quoted as saying.
