5 days ago

President Muhammadu Buhari has expressed the readiness of Nigeria to lend a helping hand to South Sudan in fighting insurgency and restoring cohesion to the country.

The President spoke at the State House, Abuja, yesterday, while receiving in audience the Special Envoy of President Salva Kiir Mayardit of South Sudan, Albino Mathom Ayuel.

He told the Special Envoy of the situation the administration met on ground in the North East in 2015, and how great strides have been made in comparison with present days.

We will study your situation and see how we can help,” President Buhari said. The Special Envoy had intimated his host about the situation in his country, particularly how an insurgent group, “just like your Boko Haram here kills, maims and destroys.”

He then appealed for “close collaboration on security, particularly the training of our forces, since you have experience in this area.”

Albino Ayuel said South Sudan was keen on ending the insurgent activities, “hence this appeal to our big brother.”
