Buhari Flies To Liberia Tomorrow To Speak On Respect For Rule Of Law

President Muhammadu Buhari is expected to depart for Liberia tomorrow, July 26 to participate in that country’s 175 years Independence anniversary and deliver a speech on the rule of law and security.

A statement today, July 25 by the senior special assistant on media and publicity, Malam Garba Shehu said that President Buhari is also expected to emphasize to them the importance of free, fair and credible elections.

Liberia, Sierra-Leone and Nigeria are going into elections in 2023.

The statement said that Buhari will also emphasize the importance of the respect for the rule of law throughout the sub-region, adding that without the rule of Law and constitutional rule, there cannot be security, peace and development.

“Peace and security of Liberia (and Sierra-Leone) is important to Nigeria given the enormous investments in men, material and resources expended by this country to secure the two states. Without the leadership of Nigeria in the context of ECOWAS to secure these two, there would not have been a Liberia on the map in its present configuration today.

“Bilaterally, Nigeria and Liberia may bring to the table issues of cross-border terrorism, bolstering defence and trade ties.

“The warmth of the relationship and personal chemistry between President Buhari and George Weah of Liberia is no less significant and will play a key role in the events of tomorrow.”
