President Buhari thanks Chad for security back-up 

President Buhari receives a Letter from Mr Ahamat Oumar Ahmat, Special Envoy of H.E. Idris Deby Itno, President of Republic Chad in State House on 19th Feb 2021

President Muhammadu Buhari has lauded the Republic of Chad for what he calls the effective “security back-up” given to Nigeria in fighting against insurgency.

The President, according to a statement by Femi Adesina, Special Adviser to the President (Media and Publicity), spoke Friday at 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 Nigeria’s neighbours was why his first trips on assuming office in 2015 were to the country’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 best of luck in their 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 were working hard to end insurgency in the northern part of the country.
