President Denis Sassou N’Guesso of the Republic of Congo and his Republic of Equatorial Guinea counterpart, Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, disclosed this in Abuja yesterday after meeting with President Goodluck Jonathan.
N’Guesso told State House journalists after the meeting that they discussed the activities of the insurgents and the Ebola virus disease in Africa.
N’Guesso and Mbasogo were on a one-day working visit to Nigeria on the invitation of Jonathan.
He noted that he and Mbasogo were mandated by the ECCAS Heads of States and Government to bring their solidarity to Nigeria and Jonathan in the fight against Boko Haram.
N’Guesso stressed that they had arrived at a mechanism for coordinating all actions for effectiveness against the terrorist group.
“We’ve no doubt that we’ll collectively utilise all political, military and diplomatic actions and mobilise all our actions in all fronts to degrade and eradicate Boko Haram. We’ve no doubt that we’ve arrived at a mechanism for coordinating all our actions for effectiveness”, he said.
He said they believed that with the leadership of the people of the continent and the support of the international community, there would be effective results.
N’Guesso said he and Mbasogo would proceed to Accra to meet with President John Mahama of Ghana, who is the ECOWAS chairman, to study the situation together and put in place a security architecture to coordinate all actions to wipe out Boko Haram.
“We want to congratulate the government and the people of Nigeria and all the security forces for the recent success they recorded in overcoming attacks by Boko Haram. We hope that the framework that we’re going to put in place will give us a better and more effective result against Boko Haram”, he added.
He said they urged the international community to render necessary material and financial support and assistant for the Lake Chad Basin Commission in the ongoing counter-terrorism efforts.
