Boko Haram: Buhari Heads To N’Djamena
President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday departed Abuja for N’Djamena, Chad, to preside over the Summit of Heads of States and Governments of the Lake Chad Basin Commission.
Buhari in his capacity as Chairman of the Summit of Heads of States and Governments of the Lake Chad Basin Commission, summoned the meeting meant to find a lasting solution to the menace of Boko Haram insurgency.
Femi Adesina, the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, in a statement in Abuja said the meeting of the Heads of States and Governments of the LCBC would take place in N’Djamena, Chad on Thursday.
Also, the President of Benin Republic, a troop-contributing country, has also been invited to attend the meeting.
The Multinational Joint Task Force, and national operations of the affected countries have appreciably degraded the capacity of Boko Haram terrorists, although the insurgents still retain the capacity to attack isolated targets in the desperate search for supplies.
According to Adesina, the one-day meeting will review the security situation in the areas affected by the Boko Haram insurgency.
He said it would also adopt measures to enhance the capacity of the MNJTF to meet the challenges of securing the areas.
