Nigeria has pledged to provide assistance to the brother African country, Burundi.

President Muhammadu Buhari made the pledge when he met President Evariste Ndayishimiye of Republic of Burundi on Tuesday,  on the margins of the 76th United Nations General Assembly holding in New York, United States.

We will be proactive, and give support to the best of our abilities,” President Buhari promised.

The Burundian President assured the Nigerian leader that his country was out of conflict, “there is now peace and reconciliation, and we have vast opportunities to exploit.”

He said his country was looking for support of friendly nations in the areas of oil supply, agriculture, mines, and several others, which Nigerian experts can provide.
