Nigerian High Commissioner to Ghana Ambassador Olufemi Michael Abikoye has commended traditional rulers in Nigeria describing them as one of the strong pillar upon which the country stands.
Answering questions from journalists shortly after he received the Emir of Kano, His Royal Highness, Muhammadu Sanusi II at Kumasi International Airport, Abikoye said Nigeria has continued to tap from the wisdom of traditional rulers in the development efforts of government at the three tiers.
Emir Sanusi is in Ghana to attend the 20th Anniversary celebration of the ascension to the Golden throne of the Asantenene.
The Ambassador also commended President Muhammadu Buhari for what he described as his “infrastructural development efforts” stressing that great work is being done in the power and other critical sectors of the economy in order to make Nigeria one of the frontline economies in the world.
Abikoye tasks Nigerians in diaspora and those at home to continue to join hands with the Federal Government.
His words: “Mr. President has proved beyond reasonable doubt that he has all it takes to move Nigeria to the next level, therefore, Nigerians in diaspora and those at home should continue to give him maximum support”
