President Buhari, in a statement, Saturday, by Femi Adesina, Special Adviser to the President (Media & Publicity), equally applauded the laudable role played in the resolution of the crisis by his Special Envoy, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, who was also adopted by ECOWAS as the regional body’s Special Envoy on the political dispute in Guinea-Bissau.
The President thanked Chief Obasanjo for a job well done and commended the ECOWAS Authority of Heads of State and Government for its steadfast commitment to peace, security and progress in Guinea-Bissau and the entire West African region.
President Buhari welcomed President Jose Mario Vaz’s acceptance of the solution to the recent political crisis proffered by Chief Obasanjo and congratulated Mr. Carlos Correia on his emergence as the new Prime Minister of Guinea-Bissau.
He urged President Vaz and Prime Minister Correia to work together harmoniously to move their country forward as envisaged by authors of the Guinea-Bissau constitution which splits the executive arm of government into the Presidency and the Premiership.
President Buhari implored all stakeholders in the development and progress of Guinea-Bissau to desist from any further actions that can jeopardize the stability of the country and its democratic future.
