President Muhammadu Buhari has warned that the African Union must undergo some internal reforms if it still want to remain relevant as an organization.
This was contained in the speech he gave at the ongoing two-day 34th Summit of the AU being held virtually.
President Buhari was quoted by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu to have given the statement titled “AU must be reformed to stay relevant -President Buhari.”
In his words, “global realities demand that the AU be overhauled if it must remain relevant in intergovernmental processes.
“We must work concertedly to ensure a productive, self-sufficient and purpose-driven organisation that will fully serve the interests of the people.
“As we commence the operationalization of this new structure and system, Nigeria demands a truly reformed, efficient and effective AU Commission, one that is fully committed to the discharge of its duties and responsibilities”, he was quoted as saying.
