President Muhammadu Buhari has just completed a speech in front of the Plenary Session of the European Parliament in Strasbourg, France.

In the speech in front of his political peers he admonished the fact that the Chibok girls have not yet all been found, promising they would be found with new strategies of counter-insurgency, and would be returned safely to their families.

He also signaled admiration toward former president Goodluck Jonathan for conceding defeat in a peaceful manner in Nigeria’s last presidential elections.

As naij.com reports Buhari said: “Democracy has come to Nigeria to stay, sooner than we expected, Nigeria will be regarded as one of the strongest in Africa,” adding that strife may arise in the process, but it is not beyond what can be contained.

His European visit comes in light of Nigerian nationals complaining that the head of state is traveling too much to be able to focus his full attention on domestic matters.
