Buhari Calls For Calm, Respect For Constitution In Zimbabwe

Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari has urged the Zimbabwean military to maintain peace and respect the country’s constitution. A government statement on Wednesday said, “The President urged all political and military stakeholders in Zimbabwe to avoid any action that may plunge the country into unnecessary conflict and impact negatively on the region.

“Every attempt must be made to resolve all contentious issues by constitutional means in Zimbabwe to save the country from avoidable political instability.”

Buhari noted that the tension in the southern African country including the reported “military takeover” emanated with President Robert Mugabe removing his former Vice-President, Emmerson Mnangagwa, recently.
