He stressed the need to deepen democratic governance in the sub-region, saying his meeting with Buhari focused on political situations in Togo and Liberia.

    We don’t want Buhari to start donating money to Alhaji Quattara because he flattered Buhari by telling him that the recession is over. Hard times are still very much in Nigeria. As a matter of fact, things are getting harder for common people. Quattara should not judge life in Nigeria by the aides and Fulani people Buhari surrounded himself with, those people have it made.
