At the invitation of His Excellency IDRISS DEBY ITNO, President of the Republic of Chad, His Excellency MUHAMMADU BUHARI, President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, accompanied by a high level delegation, paid official and friendly visit to the Republic of Chad on the 4th June 2015. He was welcomed at the Hassan Djamouss International Airport by the President of the Republic assisted by all the Constituted Bodies.
Both Heads of State had discussions which were later expanded to include their respective delegations. These discussions focused not only on bilateral issues, but also on regional and international issues and more especially the security situation in the sub-region.
Their Excellencies IDRISS DEBY ITNO and MUHAMMADU BUHARI strongly condemned the inhumane terrorist acts perpetrated on civilians in Nigeria and in its neighboring countries by Boko Haram insurgents. They underlined the consequences of insecurity which include displacement of people and disruption of their trading activities, livelihood, and destruction of lives and properties in Nigeria and the entire Lake Chad region.
Both Heads of State expressed their willingness and commitment to collaborate at all levels to make more effective the common fight against the Boko Haram sect and restore peace and security which are vital for development in the region.
His Excellency President MUHAMMADU BUHARI expressed his gratitude to His Brother and Friend, His Excellency President IDRISS DEBY ITNO for the vital role his country played to weaken this sect. Thereafter, he condoled the families of Chadian soldiers who passed away in the battle field, and paid special tribute to the gallant soldiers.
President IDRISS DEBY ITNO commended the commitment of President MUHAMMADU BUHARI to eradicating the Boko Haram terrorist group. He also reaffirmed the commitment and availability of Chad to collaborate with Nigeria on both bilateral and multilateral levels. In this regard, His Excellency President IDRISS DEBY INTO agreed with the need to move quickly to make the Multinational Joint Task Force operational in order to restore peace and security in the north-east of Nigeria and everywhere Boko Haram operates. In this vein, the two Leaders called on the International Community to provide LCBC and neighboring countries with all necessary support.
Both Heads of State agreed that war on Boko Haram should be supported by emergency development initiatives in areas affected by this insurgency group. This will be the only way to overcome the harmful effects faced by local populations.
President MUHAMMADU BUHARI expressed his profound gratitude and sincere thanks to His Brother and Friend, His Excellency IDRISS DEBY ITNO, His Government and the good people of Chad for the warm and elaborate welcome granted to him and his delegation.
