President Muhammadu Buhari, won the hearts of his fellow African leaders in Niamey, Niger Republic, who shared glowing testimonies of his leadership qualities.


The African leaders were in Niamey for the African Union Summit on Industrialisation and Economic Diversification, as well as the Extraordinary Session on African Continental Free Trade Area AfCFTA.


The African leaders used the opportunity of the Summit to attend the inauguration of the French version of the book entitled ‘‘Muhammadu Buhari: The Challenges of Leadership in Nigeria’’, in Niamey.


Speaking at the book launch, President Mohamed Bazoum of Niger Republic described the Nigerian leader as ‘‘an austere man, uncompromising, humble man, an ardent patriot and a committed democrat’’.


He also commended author of the book, John Paden, for writing about the life and work of the Nigerian leader.


Shortly after his arrival in Niamey Buhari had earlier inaugurated a
3.8km and 160m wide Boulevard named after him by the
Government of the Republic of Niger.
