President Muhammadu Buhari

FOLLOWING the upsurge in Boko Haram insurgent attacks which recently claimed the lives of about 100 Nigerian troops in Borno State, President Muhammadu Buhari, in his capacity as Chairman of the Summit of Heads of State and Government of the Lake Chad Basin Commission (LCBC), has convened a consultation of Heads of State and Government of the LCBC scheduled to take place in N’Djamena, Chad, on November 29, 2018.

According to a statement issued by Femi Adesina, Special Adviser to the President (Media and Publicity), in Abuja on Wednesday, 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 statement informed that presidents of the LCBC member countries of Chad, Cameroon, Niger, and the Central African Republic have been invited to attend the meeting.

It said the President of Benin Republic, a troop-contributing country, has also been invited to attend.

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