Former head of state, Abdulsalami Abubakar has called on African countries to change the approach of using force to maintain peace.

Abubakar stated this on Saturday at a conference organised in his honour in Abuja.

He said: “Africa as a continent has not been freed from conflict, indeed conflicts of diverse kinds are still one of the greatest challenges in Africa,” 

“Conflicts persist in Democratic Republic of Congo, Somalia, Southern Sudan, Central African Republic, Mali, Mozambique, Libya, Nigeria, Ethiopia, among others.

“Consequently, as African leaders, we must be resolute and have the strong political will to resolve these conflicts and other developmental challenges confronting our continent.
