Nigeria Remains Committed To Supporting Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic – Buhari
President Muhammadu Buhari has restated commitments to support people of the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic (SADR), and their quest for self-determination and independence.
He stated this when the President of SADR, Brahim Ghali paid him a courtesy visit at the State House on Thursday.
President Buhari, in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media & Publicity, Femi Adesina, stressed that the position is in line with the several resolutions of the African Union (AU) and the United Nations (UN) on the matter.
Nigeria remains committed to supporting the efforts of the AU and the UN towards finding a lasting solution to the Sahrawi problem.
Meanwhile, President Ghali commended Nigeria’s past support for SADR during President Buhari’s tenure as military Head of State in 1984, and the country’s support for liberation movements on the African continent.
The SADR leader said the weight of Nigeria’s support remained crucial to the final resolution of the continued colonisation of his people.
