Obasanjo advises Benin Republic to mend its ways with Nigeria.

Former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, has urged Nigeria’s west coast neighbour, Benin Republic, to change its ways for a harmonious bilateral relationship between the two countries.

Obasanjo made the remark during a news briefing on Tuesday in Addis Ababa on the margins of Policy Dialogue of African Business Associations on Implementing the African Continental Free Trade Area, AfCFTA, Agreements.

The two-day policy dialogue was co-organized by the African Union, AU, African Development Bank, AfDB, and the African Export – Import Bank, AFREXIMBANK.

Other co-organisers were The AfroChampion Initiative and the Coalition of Dialogue Africa, CoDA.

Obasanjo, the Chair of the CoDA Board of Directors, explained that Benin’s notoriety was not new, as Nigeria had for long been enduring the practice which undermined its economic well being.
