President Muhammadu Buhari in Strasbourg, France, assures the European Union that his administration is doing its utmost best to protecting the fundamental human rights of persons in the theatre of operations against Boko Haram.

Addressing a special session of the parliament, President Buhari says his government shared the European Union’s commitment to peace and security, respect for human rights, democracy and good governance, equality and tolerance, as ways of developing prosperous and strong societies.

The President speaks on Nigeria’s concerns about the economic partnership agreement between the European Union, African, Caribbean and Pacific Group of States (ACP), collectively endorsed by the economic community of West African states. He says Nigeria is yet to sign the agreement because pertinent technical issues raised by the Federal Government have not been satisfactorily addressed.
