“That is why I accepted the invitation to go for the inauguration on Dec. 29, instance.’’

President Buhari congratulated the government and people of Burkina Faso for their commitment to entrench constitutional order and democracy.

Kafando had earlier expressed his country’s appreciation to Nigeria for restoring democracy in his country.
