President Muhammadu Buhari in Maiduguri
28 November 2018

President Muhammadu Buhari and five other Presidents are to meet on Thursday in N'Djamena, the Chadian Capital over the resurgence of Boko Haram insurgency.

Presidential Spokesperson, Femi Adesina said the meeting was convened by President Buhari, in his capacity as Chairman of the Summit of Heads of State and Government of the Lake Chad Basin Commission (LCBC).

He said the one-day meeting will review the security situation in the areas affected by Boko Haram insurgency and adopt measures to enhance the capacity of the Multinational Joint Task Force (MNJTF) to meet the challenges of securing the areas.

The presidents of the LCBC member countries of Chad, Cameroon, Niger, and the Central African Republic have been invited to attend the meeting. The President of Benin Republic, a troop-contributing country, has also been invited to attend.

The MNJTF and the national operations of the affected countries have appreciably degraded the capacity of the Boko Haram terrorists, although the insurgents still retain the capacity to attack isolated targets in desperate search for supplies.
