Read:Topics trashed, on president Buhari visit to Chad.

Earlier today, the president, left Abuja to Chad, for a conference. 

Revealing, his encounter  at N'djamena, Chad, he explained that, he chaired a Meeting of Heads of State and Government of the Lake Chad Basin Commission (LCBC).

Read his words below:

"I reiterated my commitment to providing the required leadership and direction for the actualization of peace and security in the Lake Chad Region. 

Boko Haram’s increasing use of mines as well as its recent deployment of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles for surveillance activities have proved to be critical factors in the resurgence of attacks in the region. Times as these call for quick interventions & measures. We must not relent!We must not allow the enemies of the region to succeed in their quest to destabilize the area. We must reinvigorate our collective will & commitment towards eradicating terrorism from our region. We must & will remain focused and true to ensuring sustainable peace and development

We know that the crisis is being fueled by poverty and the continued shrinkage of the Lake Chad, which have rendered the people vulnerable to terrorist activities. This is why we must actualize efforts to recharge the Lake, through Inter-Basin Water Transfer from the Congo Basin.

Today’s Meeting also provided an opportunity to reiterate our message to the Military: We will ensure you have the equipment you need to optimally function. Your welfare will continue to remain our priority. And together we shall restore the Lake Chad Region to its glorious days. "
