It has not been easy sailing for Nigeria, says Buhari


President Muhammadu Buhari has admitted that it has not been a smooth sailing for Nigeria all the way.

Buhari made this comment while receiving a Special Envoy of the South Sudanese President, Mr. Ezekiel Gatkuoth, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

His Media Aide, Femi Adesina, in a statement on Tuesday, quoted the president as stating that despite the country’s situation, Nigeria was prepared to help South Sudan stabilise politically and economically.

Buhari said the two countries have a lot in common in the area of developmental aspirations.

He said, “It has not been smooth sailing for us all the way, too.

“But since South Sudan wants to share from our experience, we will support where we can, and pray hard for your stability.”

The President advised the leaders of South Sudan to keep making sacrifices “till the environment is completely stabilised.”

He stressed that stability should always be number one priority.

“You can’t manage a country efficiently till you have first stabilised it. Then, the economy must follow.

“You must provide jobs for the people, particularly the youths.

“Also, you need-to check corruption. Guard your national resources jealously. We will do our best to support,” the President said.
