President Muhammadu Buhari has said it is the duty of leaders, particularly within the West African sub-region, to do the best for their people despite shrinking resources.

The president said this on Friday at the State House, Abuja, while receiving in farewell audience, the Ambassador of Burkina Faso, Piabie Firmin Gregoire N’do, who spent 8 years on tour of duty.

President Buhari, in a statement issued by his spokesman, Femi Adesina, noted that “leaders should do the best for their people within the limits of resources.”

He expressed hope that the outgoing ambassador would use experiences garnered in the field for decision making in his country when he goes back.

Ambassador N’do, who expressed the good wishes of his country and himself to Nigeria, commended President Buhari for good diplomacy, which has seen Nigerians leading many international organisations.

He equally expressed appreciation for different kinds of support from Nigeria to Burkina Faso during the flooding crisis, their national elections and at many other critical times.

“He said he enjoyed his stay in Nigeria, had his last daughter here and holds very pleasant memories of the country. President Buhari jocularly asked if he gave his daughter Nigerian names,” Adesina stated.
