According to report reaching oyogist.com, President Muhammadu Buhari has pledged that Nigeria will always be there for the Republic of Chad, adding that the two nations are not only neighbours but brothers.
The President spoke at the State House, Abuja, Tuesday, while receiving a Special Envoy from His Excellency, President Idris Deby Itno of Chad.
He said “We are aware of the problem Chad has with Libya, which supports some Chadian rebels, trying to destabilize the country.
“The instability in Libya after 42 years of Muammar Gaddafi affects all of us in the Sahel region. From Mauritania to Central Africa Republic, Gaddafi recruited gunmen, who learnt to do nothing else than to kill.
“When the former Libyan Leader was killed, the gunmen escaped with their arms, and are wreaking havoc all over the place now,”
Stressing that Nigeria was grateful to Chad for the diverse support given to combat the Boko Haram insurgency, the President assured that Nigeria would always back up Chad in its local and international aspirations.
