Buhari reaffirms opposition to coup in Africa



President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday reaffirmed his disapproval of the unconstitutional change of government as seen in some African countries in the last few years.

The president, according to a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, spoke when he hosted a delegation of the Universal Peace Federation at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Buhari had previously condemned the removal of democratically elected leaders by military in Mali, Guinea, Sudan, Central African Republic and Equatorial Guinea, among others in Africa.
