Legislature and Judiciary

According to the president, a democratic government like the one he leads, “standing on a tripod comprising the Executive, Legislature and Judiciary, cannot stand where one of its three pillars, the Judiciary is not properly nurtured, maintained and sustained to deliver on its very pivotal constitutional duties.

Economic Community of West African States

The president had earlier on July 25 hosted outgoing President of Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) Commission, Jean-Claude Kassi Brou, at the Presidential Villa Abuja.

He lauded him for the role he played in ensuring that the sub-regional body remained united.

Buhari said: “You showed great commitment to the unity of ECOWAS, and of the sub-region.

”Your tenure has been very successful, and I wish you and the family more successes ahead.


The president departed Abuja on Tuesday for Monrovia, Liberia, to attend the 175th independence anniversary of the country.

Special Guest of Honour

Buhari, who was the Special Guest of Honour at the event, joined other world leaders and organisations to rejoice with the people of Liberia at the event with the theme: “Fostering Unity, Protecting Our Peace for Development and Prosperity.

West African

Nigeria played a leading role in the stabilisation of the West African nation in the early 90s, leading to the establishment of democratic rule and has continued to assist the country in many ways, especially through the Technical Aids Corps scheme.

West Africa

At the event in Monrovia, Buhari called on leaders in West Africa to do all within their powers to ensure that elections were conducted in their countries in an atmosphere of trust, freedom and transparency.

According to the president, this is the only way the sub-region can be insulated from the scourge of unconstitutional take overs that reared its head in three countries recently.

The president affirmed that democracy and good governance must take their roots on the African continent to sustain peace, stability and development while leaders must redouble their efforts to guarantee the irreversibility of democracy.

President Buhari

On July 27,  President Buhari presided over virtual meeting of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) at the Council Chambers of the Presidential Villa, Abuja, on Wednesday.

The Council approved an augmentation of N16 billion for the completion of the dualisation of the KanoKatsina Expressway.

Medium Term Expenditure Framework

The Council also received draft copies of the Medium Term Expenditure Framework 2023-2025 from the Ministry of Finance, Budget and National Planning for onward transmission to the National Assembly for approval.

Support Unit

The president also hosted a delegation from the OGP Support Unit, led by the Chief Executive Officer, Dr Sanjay Pradhan, on Thursday in Abuja.

Open Government Partnership

During the meeting, Buhari itemised the benefits Nigeria had derived from joining the Open Government Partnership (OGP) Support Unit since 2016.

Open Government Partnership

He said when he committed Nigeria to the membership of the Open Government Partnership at the London Anti-Corruption Summit, he was very clear about the role that the initiative would play in the fight against corruption.

National Action Plans

According to him, since that time, “we have developed and implemented two National Action Plans on the Open Government Partnership.

Archbishop Daniel Okoh

The Nigerian leader concluded the week with a congratulatory message to Archbishop Daniel Okoh,  General Superintendent of Christ Holy Church (Odozi-Obodo), on his election as the President of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN).

Church of God
