The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), has said his regime is doing its best and will continue to do its best to pursue peace and progress in Africa, and other parts of the world, by consistently pushing for justice, fairness, and inclusiveness in global affairs.

Buhari spoke on Saturday in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, in a meeting with the Prime Minister of Palestine, Mohammad Shtayyeh, on the sidelines of the ongoing African Union meetings.

Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, disclosed this in a statement he signed on Saturday titled ‘We will continue to stand, fight for justice as a country, says President Buhari at AU’.

The president said the country remains unwavering in supporting democracy, development, and good governance, particularly in ensuring the rights of individuals and institutions.

“As a country, we are doing our best, and we will continue doing our best to ensure justice and fairness,” he said.

He also assured the Palestinian leader that Nigeria would be “consistent” in pushing for peace and progress while upholding the tenets of justice.

In his remarks, Shtayyeh noted that the situation in the Middle East, particularly relations with Israel, had deteriorated over the years, adding that the world needs to know the facts.

He thanked Buhari for his leadership role in the continent, saying, “Your Excellency, we thank you for your wisdom. We need it more now. Please continue to stay well and healthy because we need your wisdom.”
