Buhari pledges on mor funding for Multinational Joint Task Force war against Boko Haram/ISWAP

President Muhammadu Buhari said that despite being at “the low ebb of resources caused by COVID-19 and fallen oil prices,” Nigeria will continue to provide support for the Multinational Joint Task Force (MNJTF) based in N’djamena, Chad Republic.

The MNJTF is a combined multinational mostly military formation comprising of units from Benin Republic, Cameroon, Chad, Niger and Nigeria charged with ending the Boko Haram insurgency.

President Buhari spoke Friday at the Presidential Villa, Abuja while receiving Ambassador Mamman Nuhu , Executive Secretary, Lake Chad Basin Commission and Head of Mission, MNJTF, stating that despite paucity of resources, security of Nigeria and that of her neighbours must have pride of place, “so I will consult with all the relevant officials, and we will do our best.”

Ambassador Nuhu gave the President updates on the proposed recharge of Lake Chad, which he said was one of the priorities of Lake Chad Basin Commission, “and for which you have great passion,” informing that the governments of China and Italy were of great support, and positive action should commence soon.

He also commended countries which have contributed troops to MNJTF, adding, however, that kinetic military approach alone would not eradicate insurgency, and emphasis must also be placed on the root causes, particularly poverty.
