President Muhammadu Buhari has pledged that Nigeria will within the limits of resources do her best to support the consolidation of democracy in West African countries.

A statement signed by a Presidential media aide, Femi Adesina noted that, the President made this known at State House, Abuja, as he hosted President Roch Marc Christian Kabore of Burkina Faso, who was on a one-day official visit to Nigeria.

According to the Buhari, the country is keeping tabs on situations in countries that have elections ahead and will support them, so things could go smoothly, saying they know the countries that are calm and the ones where there have been unfortunate casualties.

Burkina Faso holds legislative elections in November, this year and President Kabore, who chairs the Economic, Trade and Liberalization Scheme of ECOWAS, said he was in Nigeria to discuss crucial sub-regional issues with President Buhari.

President Kabore commended the Nigerian leader for what he called “strong leadership and support” displayed in his capacity as Chairman of COVID-19 response in West Africa.
