    Background: PRESIDENT HAMANI DIORI, OF NIGER, HAS CALLED FOR A POLITICAL SOLUTION TO RESTORE PEACE IN NIGERIA, WITH THE HOPE THAT FEDERAL NIGERIAN LEADERS WOULD BRING ABOUT THE NATIONAL RECONCILIATION THAT THEY HAD ALWAYS AFFIRMED IN PRINCIPLE. PRESIDENT DIORI WAS SPEAKING IN YAUNDE, AT CAMEROUN'S 10TH INDEPENDENCE ANNIVERSARY. HE HAD TRAVELLED THERE WITH PRESIDENT FELIX HOUPHOUET-BOIGNY, OF THE IVORY COAST.

    PRESIDENT DIORI HAD ARRIVED IN ABIDJAN ON FRIDAY (9 JANUARY) TO SPEND A SHORT TIME WITH PRESIDENT HOUPHOUET-BOIGNY BEFORE LEAVING FOR YAOUNDE.
