With just 48 hours to Muhammadu Buhari’s inauguration, National leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu has disclosed plans of the president-elect not just for Nigeria but likewise for Africa.
Speaking while receiving President Alpha Conde of Guinea, Tinubu assured Africans that the administration of Buhari will work tirelessly to contribute its quota to the development of the African Continent.
According to him, Africa must have its home-grown strategy to build its economy and there is a need for the continent to address trade issues and conflicts being perpetuated by fundamentalists which Buhari plans to tackle, Ynaija reports.
He said, “We must form that synergy amongst African countries to develop the continent. We must address open trade issues and conflict of fundamentalist. We must resolve our problems in order for our today to be better for a great continent of Africa.
“Now we have that leader; we have those leaders and they are working together to share ideas and share vision. We will rescue Africa from destitution, poverty and ignorance and that is all that we are working hard for.”
President Alpha Conde also backed Buhari to fight corruption in Nigeria, just like he did in his country.

He said, “I came to Lagos to meet my brother, Tinubu before I meet with President Buhari. Buhari, who is a straight forward person that will fight corruption like me, I believe his emergence as President will culminate in a stronger relationship between Guinea and Nigeria.
“Before the last general elections in Nigeria, there were anxiety, fear and uncertainty over the land. It was the belief that the country would disintegrate. This is also drawn from the fact that Nigeria fought the Biafra war. The war against Boko Haram was also there which Africa has to jointly fight.”
Meanwhile, just as everything seems to be ready for Muhammadu Buhari’s May 29 inauguration, a Nigerian group has called on Abuja Federal High Court to stop the process.
