President Muhammadu Buhari has declared his total support for a two-state solution to the Israel-Palestine conflict.
The Nigerian President stated this during a meeting on Sunday with the Emir of Qatar, Tamim Bin Hammad Al-Thani, his spokesperson, Femi Adesina, said.
“I want to assure you that we will stand side by side with you, until our brothers and sisters in Palestine achieve their desired objectives,” he said.Buhari has been highly critical of the IPOB and MASSOB, two groups that have been very vocal about the secession of the South East and South South geopolitical zones to a new country, Biafra, from Nigeria.
“Our support for various Security Council resolutions restoring and respecting 1967 boundaries with Jerusalem as capital of Palestine is firm and unshaken.”
Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the IPOB has been kept in the custody of the Federal Government's special police, DSS, for months despite several court orders to release him.
