Buhari Back To Abuja From Mauritania

Reports say the president’s Leonardo AW139 helicopter conveying him from the Nnamdi Azikiwe Airport arrived at Aso Rock Villa a few minutes before 04:00 pm; concluding his first foreign trip in 2023.

Buhari had, during his trip to Mauritania, disclosed that his administration spent over $1bn to reclaim Boko Haram-held territories in Borno, Adamawa, and Yobe since 2015.

The president also blamed the insecurity in Nigeria and that of the Lake Chad Basin on the lingering conflicts in Libya, the Central African Republic, and Russia’s aggression in Ukraine.

He said the situation was a result of the free circulation of “all sorts of small and light weapons” orchestrated by foreign fighters.

He also argued that the idleness of African youths and non-inclusion in discussing issues that concern them is providing a steady recruitment pool for extremist organisations wreaking havoc in various parts of the continent.

He called on African leaders to, therefore, place a premium on youth development, with more seriousness and actionable ideas in promoting skills acquisition while discouraging idleness.

Meanwhile, Kanyi Daily reported that Buhari was conferred with the “Award for Strengthening Peace in Africa” by the Abu Dhabi Peace Forum at the conference.
