President Bola Tinubu has called for a united front against the proliferation of arms and light weapons in Africa.

Expressing concern over the rising threat of terrorism, insurgency and military intrusions in governance across Africa, particularly in West Africa, President Tinubu pressed the African Union and the United Nations to devise innovative strategies to halt the flow of arms and light weapons into the continent. The President stated this when he declared open a conference for dialogue in Abuja themed ‘The Africa we want and the UN we need.’

Represented by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, George Akume, the President commended the efforts of the Savannah Centre for Diplomacy, Democracy and Development, and the Stimson Centre for organising the high-level Regional Dialogue, highlighting the global call for reform and democratisation of the UN System.
