Buhari Receives Counter-Terrorism Strategy Manual From Pakistan
Nigeria and Pakistan have one thing in common that everyone knows about – terrorism.
This similarity is the reason Pakistan presented a manual on strategy and tactics of dealing with terrorism to President Muhammadu Buhari.
Pakistani Prime Minister, Shahid Abbasi, made the presentation on Saturday in Istanbul at a bilateral meeting with the Nigerian leader, held on the sideline of the ninth D-8 summit in Istanbul, Turkey.
A spokesman for President Buhari, Mr Garba Shehu, issued a statement after the meeting.
The Prime Minister said the document was put together by his country’s army.
Abbasi highlighted that the presentation was made in view of the fact that both countries had similar prospects and challenges.
He said such similarities included large population, key regional players in economy and security, the fight against terrorism, improving governance and the domestic economy.
“Pakistan would continue to share experiences with Nigeria in the fight against terrorism towards developing effective strategies and results,” he told President Buhari.
Both nations had agreed to revamp a joint commission to increase trade and other relations that had not been fully explored.
Abbasi then requested that President Buhari should undertake a state visit to Pakistan at the earliest possible time.
