President Muhammadu Buhari has paid tributes to troops fighting insurgents in Nigeria, urging them to remain steadfast in executing the war with the highest sense of honor, professionalism and patriotism.
He also praised the international community for assisting the country in her fight against insurgency but asked for more help from them, going ahead.
“To our esteemed partners and the larger international community, we appreciate your valuable support and contributions in helping with the resultant humanitarian crisis. We thank you for intelligence sharing and operations in our determination to defeat Boko Haram and its affiliates.
“We, however, solicit greater cooperation and additional assistance to the LCBC/MNJTF to completely end the menace of Boko Haram and eradicate it from the sub-region. Such an outcome would add to global peace and security,” he said.
The meeting which is a follow up to a similar meeting held in N’djamena, the Chadian capital last month was convened for the adoption of a report of the LCBC security and defence committee on the Boko Haram insurgency.
