Buhari recently revealed this while receiving in audience former Vice President Namadi Sambo, who heads ECOWAS Election Mission to the West African country at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
According to him, Nigeria would give robust support to Niger Republic in its forthcoming presidential and national assembly elections, and President Mahamadou Issoufou should be praised for not trying to tamper with the Constitution of his country.
He added that President Mahamadou Issoufou should be applauded for not attempting to elongate his stay in power after serving for the maximum two terms.
His words, “I come from Daura, few kilometers to Republic of Niger, so I should know a bit about that country. The President is quite decent, and we are regularly in touch. He is sticking to the maximum term prescribed by the Constitution of his country.
“Also, we share more than 1,400 kilometers of border with that country, which can only be effectively supervised by God. I will speak with the President and offer his country our support. We need to do all we can to help stabilize the Sahel region, which is also in our own interest.”
