In his speech, President Muhammadu Buhari, called for increased training of military officers. Officials said that this is what Buhari feels is needed to fight the dreaded Boko Haram.
The host Prime Minister Narendra Modi told the leaders of African nations in Delhi that India and Africa must “speak in one voice” for U.N. reforms.
Mr. Modi said, “India’s expertise in healthcare and affordable medicines can offer new hope in the fight against many diseases; and give a newborn a better chance to survive. We will also collaborate to develop Indian and African treasures of traditional knowledge and medicines.”
“This is a world of free nations and awakened aspirations. Our institutions cannot be representative of our world, if they do not give voice to Africa, with more than a quarter of UN members, or the world’s largest democracy with one-sixth of humanity,” Mr. Modi said.
Colourfully painted battery operated cars drove the delegates around the arena, even as dancers lit up the stage with themes from India and Africa dominating the backdrop.
