Nigeria President, Muhammadu Buhari has applauded Chad for backing Nigeria in it’s fight against Boko Haram’s insurgency.
Buhari echoed this at the State House Abuja on Friday, while receiving Special Envoy to the Republic of Chad, Mr Ahmat Oumar Ahmat.
The president in his words said the need for security collaboration with our neighbours was why his first trips on assuming office in 2015 were to Nigeria’s immediate neighbours.
In a statement issued on Friday by his spokesman, Femi Adesina, the president said, “I went round because we needed to work together. The peoples are the same, cultures are similar, so it was important that we also worked together on security.”
