President Muhammadu Buhari has come out to tell the government and people of Burkina Faso who got hit by a recent deadly terrorist attack that killed 35 citizens, that their brothers in Nigeria and the West African subregion will not abandon them in this trying period.
Having his say on the attack that happened on Tuesday in Arbinda, the northern part of Burkina Faso, Buhari said the killing of 31 women in the country was nothing but cowardly and should be condemned all over the world.
In a recent statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, PMB said a summit would be held in 2020 to discuss the problems of security and economy in Africa.
His words, “I look forward to that meeting”,
“As we have done all the time, we will stand with our brothers and sisters in West Africa in all situations.”
