President Muhammadu Buhari has said multi-party democracy is the best system going by his experience with both military and civilian rule.

The president stated this Wednesday at State House, Abuja, while playing host to a delegation of the Universal Peace Federation.

He wondered why some African countries were still descending into the abyss of unconstitutional change of government, saying: “I thought we had finally put that behind us.”

On the peace summit being planned for Abuja, to bring all African countries together before the end of this administration, President Buhari pledged Nigeria’s support, “relative to resources, to help in stabilising neighboring countries.”

The president, who decried the problems in the Sahel belt of the continent, lamented that it was of great concern as it affected both agriculture and businesses “negatively”.

President Buhari, in a statement issued Wednesday by his spokesman, Femi Adesina, described the interest of Universal Peace Federation Africa in the continent as “quite genuine,” saying he was very pleased with the development.

Dr Katherine Rigney, Chairperson of the Federation in Africa, and Dr Thomas Walsh, Chairman of Universal Peace Federation International, said they believed the forthcoming summit in Nigeria “will top them all,” having held similar meetings in the past in Niger Republic, Senegal, Sao Tome and Principe, South Africa, among others.

During the Abuja Summit, President Buhari will be given the Leadership and Good Governance Award, “as appreciation of the fantastic results you’ve brought to Nigeria, and a celebration of your anti-corruption credentials,” they said.
