President Muhammadu Buhari has called on European leaders to support measures put in place by the African Union to stem the tide of unconstitutional leadership changes becoming a vogue on the continent.
Contributing to the roundtable discussion on Peace, Security and Governance at the ongoing 6th EU-AU Summit, President Buhari equally stressed the need to nip the root causes of extremism, conflicts, and tensions in Africa at inception.
The President also called for stronger support from the European Union in the condemnation and imposition of weighty sanctions on countries that engage in unconstitutional change of governments, as well as manipulation of constitutions in favour of extension of term limits.
President Buhari added that it was imperative to ensure that election processes in Africa had outcomes that truly reflect the wishes of the electorate, as to go contrary to these is courting instability.
The President called for the concretisation and transformation of promises of co-operation made by the European leaders to actions.
He called for support for the realisation of Africa’s Blue Economy Agenda for development.
