Buhari reiterates Africa as centrepiece of foreign policy
President Muhammadu Buhari has restated that Africa remains the centrepiece of Nigeria’s foreign policy. The nation’s first citizen, who spoke yesterday while opening of the fourth Ordinary Congress of the International Trade Union Confederation – Africa (ITUC-Africa) in Abuja, urged organised labour not to lift workers’ interest above national’s.
Assuring that Nigeria would open its doors to the rest of the continent, he, however, pointed out that the most populous black nation expects reciprocation from fellow countries.
Buhari, whose address was read by the Permanent Secretary, General Service, Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Olusegun Adekunle, stated that workers must demonstrate greater zeal in defending the interest of the society. In his intervention, president of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Ayuba Wabba, submitted that unpopular economic policies that place high premium on “profitability being promoted by the Bretton Woods institutions” were heightening protests and civil unrests globally.
