President Muhammadu Buhari says Nigeria is ready to extend a helping hand to South Sudan towards political and economic stability.

In a bilateral meeting with President Salva Kiir of South Sudan, the President assured him of the full support of Nigeria to all efforts to bring long-term stability and prosperity to the continent.

Stressing the need for co-operation among developing countries, President Buhari said with investments in education, improved economy, and healthcare, things would improve.

On the situation in Guinea and Mali, President Buhari reiterated that African leaders must support efforts geared towards the return of democracy in the countries.

The President expressed concern that as long as Libya remained unstable, the proliferation of arms and the problems in the Sahel would continue.

In his remarks, President Kiir , who acknowledged Nigeria’s leadership role in Africa, appreciated the country’s effort in the liberation struggle of South Sudan.

He also commended the First Lady of Nigeria for assisting in the education of many South Sudanese girls in the country.

President Buhari and President Kiir were among several African leaders that attended the inauguration ceremony of Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed of Ethiopia for a second five-year term in office.
