The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (rtd.), has been commended for good diplomacy, which has seen Nigerians leading many international organisations.
The Ambassador of Burkina Faso, Piabie Firmin Gregoire N’do, gave the commendation at the State House in Abuja, during a farewell visit to the president on Friday.
Ambassador N’do who had spent eight years on tour of duty, said he enjoyed his stay in Nigeria, had his last daughter here and holds very pleasant memories of the country.
He expressed appreciation for different kinds of support from Nigeria to Burkina Faso during the flooding crisis, their national elections, and at many other critical times.
In a statement signed by Femi Adesina, the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, the President said it is the duty of leaders, particularly within the West African sub-region, to do the best for their people, despite shrinking resources.
Buhari said, “Leaders should do the best for their people within the limits of resources,” Buhari affirmed, adding that he hoped the outgoing Ambassador would use experiences garnered in the field “for decision making in your country when you go back.”
