The President, Muhammadu Buhari, has called for a cease-fire in Sudan following the fight that broke out in the country’s capital, Khartoum, between the military and para-military.
Speaking yesterday during a visit to him in Makkah, Saudi Arabia, by the transitional president of Chad, General Mahamat Idriss Déby Itno, Buhari described the fight between the Rapid Support Forces as unwelcome.
The two leaders reviewed the unfortunate situation and called on all neighbouring countries and the international community to prevail on the warring sides to stop fighting and negotiate.
Buhari acknowledged that the situation in Sudan is unfortunate, adding that Sudan deserved peace after all it had gone through.
