Nigeria, Algeria, others form G4 alliance, vow to tackle African issues
The four nations established a new alliance for consultation and coordination on major African issues.
On Thursday in Brussels, the African nations of Nigeria, Algeria, South Africa, and Ethiopia met under the auspices of the G4 nations and decided to improve the platform for resolving the numerous difficulties affecting Africa.
Leaders of the four nations gathered on the margins of the ongoing 6th EU-AU Summit in Brussels, Belgium, to discuss crisis-stricken regions on the continent in order to find practical and effective solutions.
The President of Nigeria Muhammadu Buhari and his colleagues emphasized the importance of reviving the G4 within the African Union (AU) as a platform for bringing African countries closer together, coordinating actions and reactions for the entire continent in a more proactive manner, and investigating how AU decisions could be better implemented.
They also decided to have a formal summit in the coming months to determine a course for Africa.
The G4 Platform, an initiative of Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed, was established to discuss and provide ideas, as well as to aggregate viewpoints, to guarantee that the African Union's work is carried out successfully, efficiently, and swiftly.
