Buhari hails Chad for giving Nigeria backup



By Bolaji OGUNDELE, Abuja

President Muhammadu Buhari has expressed Nigeria’s appreciation to the Republic of Chad for providing security back-up to the country in its crusade against insurgency.

According to a statement issued by Presidential Spokesman, Mr Femi Adesina, the President spoke yesterday at the State House, Abuja, while receiving in audience Mr Ahmat Oumar Ahmat, a Special Envoy of President Idriss Deby Itno.

President Buhari 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.

“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,” the President said.

He wished Republic of Chad the best of luck in the general elections coming up in April.

The Special Envoy said he bore a solidarity message from President Itno on the security situation in Nigeria, as well as encouragement for Nigerian troops, who he said were working hard to end insurgency in the northern part of the country.
