President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated Ethiopian Prime Minister, Abiy Ahmed, who was declared the winner of the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize on Friday in Oslo, Norway.
He said it portends a good sign for the peace processes within countries, and across borders on the African continent.
President Buhari, in a statement by the Special Adviser on Media and publicity, Chief Femi Adesina, felicitated with the Prime Minister, his cabinet and all Ethiopians on the remarkable global recognition of winning the 100th peace prize, which was attributed to a decision to end 20-year conflict between two African countries, Ethiopia and Eritrea.
The President reiterated his belief that African development is strongly tied to peaceful co-existence, and deliberate efforts by governments and people to sustain harmony within and between countries.
He urged for a more concerted and collective partnership on peace in the continent.
