The president, however, said Nigeria was prepared to help South Sudan to stabilise politically and economically.

According to a statement by his special adviser on media and publicity, Femi Adesina, the president spoke while receiving a special envoy of the South Sudanese President, Ezekiel Gatkuoth, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Buhari noted that the two countries had a lot in common in the area of developmental aspirations.

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