Frequent crisis in Africa, embarrassing –Buhari


President Muhammadu Buhari has described as embarrassing, fresh conflicts in the continent, resulting in large refugee situations and displacement of many across borders.
He called on the Peace and Security Council (PAC) of the AU and regional economic communities to more effectively coordinate and harmonise their efforts in a complementary manner to address insecurity in the continent.
Represented by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, the President made the call while declaring open the Peace and Security Council Retreat on the enhancement of cooperation between the AU Peace and Security Council (PAC) and the Regional Economic Communities in the promotion of peace, security and stability in Africa, in Abuja.
He said: ‎”In wishing you every success in these collective efforts for peace and security in Africa I would like to remind that attention should be focused on how the Peace and Security Council and the regional economic communities can enhance effectiveness and efficiency using their comparative advantages and various capacities within the context of subsidiarity and complementarity in the areas of early warning and early action, conflict prevention, peace-making, post-conflict peace building, reconstruction and development, strengthening of democratic practices and good governance as well as in combating terrorism and violent extremism.
He noted that it is if and when all the issues are comprehensively addressed, that all the weak linkages and gaps that often pose the risk of parallel initiatives could be eliminated thereby achieving the limited objectives under African Peace and Security Architecture (APSA).
Meanwhile, the President has commended Alhaji Bamanga Tukur‎’s  exemplary political maturity and commitment to national peace and development.
He said this in his congratulatory message to Tukur, one of Nigeria’s foremost entrepreneurs, political leaders and elder statesmen, who turned 80 today.
The Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina‎, in a statement said  Buhari seized the opportunity of the Tafidan Adamawa’s birthday to reaffirm the nation’s enduring  gratitude for his significant contributions to Nigeria’s political and socio-economic development over many years.
