President Nana Akufo-Addo, of Ghana has praised President Muhammadu Buhari, for Combating Boko haram in his administration.
President Akufo-Addo while speaking during a public launch of two biographies about Buhari’s life on Friday, disclosed that history would remember the outgoing Nigerian president kindly.
The event, which featured the unveiling of the books titled “State of Repair: How Muhammadu Buhari Tried to Change Nigeria for Good” by Antony Goldman and “The Legacy of Muhammadu Buhari” by Senator Abu Ibrahim, was attended by dignitaries and raised over N500 million.
He commended Buhari’s contributions to diversifying the Nigerian agriculture, revitalizing the economy, and ensuring significant growth rates.
The Ghanaian president highlighted Buhar’s role as chairman of the Authority of Heads of States and Government of ECOWAS, the Gulf of Guinea Commission and his coordination of the fight against COVID-19 in ECOWAS.
He expressed belief that Buhari’s legacies would be remembered positively.
He also expressed admiration for Buhari and his leadership, stating that Nigeria, West Africa, Africa and the world would miss his thoughtful decision-making and dedication to Nigerian and African interests.
“Likewise, through the launch of today’s biographies, the story of President Muhammadu Buhari, a man who made such a great effort to change Nigeria for good, is being told by those who have had the opportunity to see for themselves at firsthand, from the beginning of his mandate as a democratically elected president, to his last days in office, the highs and lows of his tenure thus far. From what I have read and know, the life of Muhammadu Buhari has been truly an amazing story.
“The works the President Buhari has done in helping to diversify Nigerian agriculture and thereby enhancing significantly agricultural productivity, reviving the economy and ensuring consistently fast rates of growth. These developments, for me, have vindicated the choice of Nigerians, which I believe enabled continuity in office for the APC, through President-elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
