President Muhammadu Buhari has reiterated his administration’s commitment to eradicating terrorism in Nigeria. Buhari disclosed this when he granted audience to a Special Envoy of Pres. Obiang Nguema Mbasogo of Equatorial Guinea at the Presidential Villa on Thursday, 5th November 2015. The president said that recent developments have made it important for Nigeria and other African nations to close ranks and work together against terrorism. He further said since terrorism no longer respects national borders, the international community must urgently evolve and implement more effective collaborative measures to enhance global security.
In his words, Buhari said: “Good neighbourliness is essential for the security and economic development of African countries.Terrorism no longer respects borders. We must keep on improving joint measures and actions against terrorism and other trans-border crimes. It was with this necessity in mind that I visited all of Nigeria’s neighbouring countries immediately after my assumption of office.We will continue to do our best to strengthen regional and international cooperation against terrorism.”
