The statement was made available to cyboknews on Tuesday, by Egyptian Presidency’s Spokesman, Amb Alaa Youssef, through the embassy’s Head of Press and Information, Ahmed Maher, in Abuja.
“The President of Egypt, Abdel Fatah Al-Sisi, yesterday, called the President-elect of Nigeria, Gen Muhammadu Buhari, to congratulate him for his success in the Nigerian Presidential Election.
“During the call, they discussed the bilateral relationship between the two countries and agreed on the importance of this relationship and the need to develop it on various levels. They also agreed to have more dialogue and coordination on the African level for the interest of the continent which Egypt gives a priority.
“Sisi also officially invited Buhari to visit Egypt in order to hold talks about how to strengthen the bilateral relationship and international common interests like fighting terrorism and enhancing the security and the stability of the continent for the desired development of its people,” the statement read.
‘It is disingenuous to accuse everyone who calls for restructuring as trying to break up the county. History tells us that that kind of cheap blackmail will not work as long as the underlying reasons for the agitations persist.’
‘The biggest challenge seems to be that we seem to be allowing moderate voices on this issue to be drowned out by the reckless utterances of a few rabble rousers on all sides who may be tools in the hands of those who do not wish this country well. These are some of the people who arrogate to themselves the toga of spokespersons of our diverse groups.’
