President Buhari gives wise leadership – Angolan ambassador


President Muhammadu Buhari is giving wise leadership to Nigeria, says outgoing Angolan ambassador Eustaquio Januario Quibato, despite widespread criticisms by many that the country is floundering amid insecurity and economic hardship.

Muhammadu Buhari hosted Mr aQuibato and the UAE ambassador to Nigeria, Fahad Obaid Al Taffaq, in farewell audiences at State House, Abuja.

The outgoing Angolan ambassador thanked the president for the “wise leadership you’ve been giving to Nigeria,” for being the anti-corruption champion in Africa, and for degrading Boko Haram.

He also lauded Buhari for repositioning the Nigerian economy to be less import dependent.

Buhari recalled Nigeria’s role in the liberation of Angola, noting that the country uses its size and resources to help sister African nations as much as possible.

He said despite the rash of military coups in some parts of the continent, “democracy is still the best option.”

The UAE ambassador said he was glad Nigeria made a good impression on him.

While recalling that he had been well received anytime he visited UAE, Buhari assured that the two countries would continue to improve on their relationship “as we have so much in common.”

Taffaq pledged that the two countries would continue to work “on the details of our relationship,” adding that he made many friends in government, the private sector and civil society in his five-year stay.

He said he travelled extensively in Nigeria and has come to understand the diversity and culture of the people.

“I am leaving with beautiful memories. I will continue to be close to Nigeria in different capacities,” the ambassador said.
