President Muhammadu Buhari, has expressed displeasure over the disturbing political developments in South Sudan which had lingered due to the non-implementation of peace accord signed by the leaders.
Buhari, however, said that Nigeria would keep following up events in the country to ensure that the country regains stability.
The President, while receiving a Letter of Credence of the Ambassador of the Republic of South Sudan, Paul Malong Akaro, at the State House, Abuja yesterday, pointed out that delay in implementing the peace accord had affected the development of the country in spite of the lofty potentials for growth.
According to him, “I was a little disappointed with the subsequent developments in your country. I was hoping that we can move forward and develop the great potentials of your country after the peace accord.
“The African Union will continue to hold your leaders to account in implementing the peace process.
“And the leaders should be able to accommodate one another for the good of your people.”
Buhari further told the ambassador that the peace process would be most effective when accepted and implemented by leaders from within the country, without external interventions.
Buhari, who also received the Letter of Credence of the Ambassador of Saharawi Arab Democratic Republic, Malainine Sadik-Bachir, assured that Nigeria would continue to back the country as it strove to realize its goals of development.
He added, “You can be assured that Nigeria will remain steadfast in her support for Saharawi Arab Democratic Republic. We will continue to do our best for you.
“In his remarks, the South Sudan ambassador, Mr. Akaro said the government of national unity in South Sudan was still committed to the peace process in the country.
“We know that the only way we can achieve stability and development is to implement the peace process. We are grateful for your support.”
