Chad seeks OIC members’ support to end insecurity in W/Africa

The President of the Transitional Military Council of Chad, Mahamat Idriss Déby Itno, has urged members of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) to support and strengthen countries in West Africa to be able to combat insecurity in the region.

He made the remark Wednesday while receiving the Secretary General of OIC, Hissein Brahim Taha, in N’Djamena.

The president while underlining the special interest Chad attached to the OIC and its institutions, stressed the need to further strengthen the activities of the OIC, especially in the Sahel and Lake Chad region.

Itno, in a statement by OIC, emphasised the need for the organisation and its member states to support countries of the region in combating terrorism, extremism and deepen security, stability and development.

Speaking, Taha thanked the president for the audience and the confidence reposed in him to lead the organization.

He also praised Chad’s effective role in supporting the OIC and its programmes and briefed him on the key files and workings of the OIC.

He further commended the role of Chad in enhancing security, stability, and development in the region, especially in Mali and other neighboring countries.

In attendance, alongside the secretary general, were the Assistant Secretary-General for Science and Technology, Askar Musinov, and Boubakar Adamou, Director of the African Affairs at the OIC General Secretariat.
