Nigeria and Chad Renew Commitment to Collaborate in Fight Against Boko Haram!
According to a communiqué issued at the end of President Buhari’s one-day official visit to Chad, both leaders have agreed on the urgent need to ensure the Multi-National Joint Task Force (MNJTF) becomes fully operational to effectively combat terrorism in North-East Nigeria and “everywhere” that Boko Haram currently operates.
Both President Buhari and President Deby also called on the international community to provide the Lake Chad Basin Commission and neighboring countries with the necessary support that is required to combat terrorism and insurgency.
“Both Heads of State agreed that the war on Boko Haram should be supported by emergency development initiatives in areas affected by this insurgency group,’’ the communiqué said, adding, “This will help to overcome the harmful effects faced by local populations.”
