President Muhammadu Buhari will host leaders of Lake Chad Basin Commission in an informal summit on the side lines of Democracy Day and second term inauguration celebrations on June 12, 2019, in Abuja.

The meeting, according to a statement by the Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, will focus on bringing up new strategies to end the menace of Boko Haram in the Lake Chad region.

Speaking at a bilateral meeting with President Idris Deby Itno of Chad Republic in Makkah, Saudi Arabia, where both leaders are attending the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) summit, Buhari said it was time for “a new way forward that completely removes the threat of terrorism from Lake Chad sub-region.”

The President said since elections were over, he would have more time to pursue the threat of terrorism with “full force’’.

The Nigerian and Chadian leaders agreed on the need for sub-regional leaders to sit down and agree on changing the strategy “for a more sustained operation, which will continue until the threat is brought to a permanent end.’’

President Buhari and President Deby Itno also discussed the challenge posed by rainy season to military operations against terrorism, agreeing to urgently review strategies that will bolster onslaught against insurgents.

The two leaders talked about how the meeting in Abuja will respond to infiltration of displaced elements of the Daesh, an acronym for ISIL’s Arabic name, al-Dawlah al-Islamîyah fî l-»Irâq wa-sh-Shâm, through Libya into the Lake Chad area.
