Buhari Commiserates with Algerian President over Bouteflika’s Demise

Deji Elumoye in Abuja

President Muhammadu Buhari has commiserated with President Abdelmadjid Tebboune of Algeria over the demise of the country’s former President Abdelaziz Bouteflika.

On behalf of the government of Nigeria, the president, in a release on Saturday by his Media Adviser, Femi Adesina, also sympathised with the family of the former president and the Algerian people as they mourn the loss of the remarkable leader who ruled the country for 20 years.

According to President Buhari, Bouteflika, as a veteran in the civil war that led to Algeria’s independence, Foreign Minister, President of the United Nations General Assembly during the 1974–1975 sessions and political leader, made significant contributions to the development of his country.

On the African front, the Nigerian leader noted that Bouteflika was a true Pan-Africanist and his legacy of securing the Algiers Peace Treaty between Eritrea and Ethiopia and supporting peace efforts in the Africa Great Lakes region will not be forgotten.

The president prayed for the peaceful repose of the soul of the departed and comfort for the Algerian people in their period of grief.
