President Muhammadu Buhari will host leaders of Lake Chad Basin Commission LCBC in an informal summit on the sidelines of Democracy Day and Second Term inauguration celebrations on June 12, 2019, in Abuja.

The President in a statement released by Garba Shehu a few hours ago said, since elections were over, he would have more time to pursue the threat of terrorism with “full force’’.

“The Nigerian and Chadian leader agreed on the need for sub-regional leaders of the Lake Chad Basin to sit down and agree on changing the strategy “for a more sustained operation, which will continue until the threat is brought to a permanent end.’’
The statement continued by stating that:

President Buhari and President Deby Itno also discussed the challenge posed by rainy season to military operations against terrorism, agreeing to urgently review strategies that will bolster onslaught against insurgents.

The two leaders talked about how the meeting in Abuja will respond to infiltration of displaced elements of the Daesh, an acronym for ISIL’s Arabic name, al-Dawlah al-Islamīyah fī l-ʻIrāq wa-sh-Shām, through Libya into the Lake Chad Basin area.” he said.
