Muhammadu Buhari-Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo

President Muhammadu Buhari late Monday in Malabo, the capital of Equatorial Guinea, received the country’s highest national honour, the Grand Collar of the Order of the Independence, and dedicated it to the people of Nigeria, who he said, have worked tirelessly for peace in the country and Africa.

“I will like to express profound gratitude for the honour given to me and my people”, a statement by Buhari’s spokesperson, Femi Adesina, quoted him as saying.

“There has never been a time for greater neighbourliness on our continent in the interest of peace, security and economic stability than now”, President Buhari said at the investiture ceremony.

The president said as African countries faced common challenges, they must strive to cooperate more to find workable solutions that will facilitate rapid socio-economic development on the continent.

Mr. Buhari pledged that under his leadership, Nigeria would continue to make significant contributions to peace, political stability and progress in Africa.

Earlier, President Obiang Nguema Mbasogo of Equatorial Guinea, said the honour was conferred on President Buhari for his “personal integrity, exemplary leadership style and courage to fight terrorism in order to ensure peace and safety in Africa”.

“We deemed it fit and appropriate to honour this son of Africa for the great work he is doing, which includes tackling Boko Haram, a great menace to the continent”, President Mbasogo said.

President Buhari, who began a two-day visit to Equatorial Guinea for talks on maritime security on Monday, was later hosted to a state dinner after the investiture.

The president is billed to return to Abuja on Tuesday.
