President Muhammadu Buhari has said that recent developments have made it more important than ever before for Nigeria and other African nations to close ranks and work together against terrorism.
According to a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, the President spoke while granting audience to a special envoy of President Obiang Nguema Mbasogo of Equatorial Guinea at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Buhari was quoted as saying that since terrorism no longer respected national borders, the international community must urgently evolve and implement more effective collaborative measures to enhance  global security.
“Good neighbourliness is essential for the security and economic development of African countries.
“Terrorism no longer respects borders. Therefore, 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 and we will continue to do our best to strengthen regional and international cooperation against terrorism,” the President was quoted as saying.
The special envoy, Mr.Agapito Mba Mokuy, told Buhari that the security of Nigeria was very important to the entire West African region.
Mokuy, who is also Equatorial Guinea’s Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, said Mbasogo was impressed by the progress Nigeria was making, under President Buhari’s leadership, towards ending the Boko Haram insurgency.
He delivered an invitation from President Mbasogo for President Buhari to visit Equatorial Guinea at his earliest convenience.
