President Muhammadu Buhari has described Nigeria as a peaceful nation like Gambia, South Korea, Slovak, Australia, Bagladesh and Guinea Bissau.
Speaking on Thursday at the State House, Abuja, while receiving letters of credence from the envoys of the six countries, the president identified peace as another common thing among the seven countries apart from the fraternal relations between Nigeria and the nations.
He said: “In addition to the fraternal relations between us, the one thing Nigeria has in common with your countries is peace.
“Peace is priceless, desirable and crucial to sustainable development and achieving the targets set by the UN global initiatives.
“It is therefore imperative for us to work individually and bilaterally for sustainable peace. Achieving global peace is vital to attaining food security. Peace and food security should be pursued simultaneously.”
He assured the new ambassadors that Nigeria enjoys very good bilateral relations with each of their countries, and there was need to enhance the cordial relations for the joint benefit of citizens.
