Recession won’t last long — FGNigeria will always be there for the Republic of Chad, as we are not only neighbours but brothers, President Muhammadu Buhari has pledged.

The President spoke at State House, Abuja, Tuesday, while receiving a Special Envoy from His Excellency, President Idris Deby Itno of Chad, adding that Nigeria appreciates the support she was getting in tackling insecurity from the neighbouring country.

Read the full statement as signed by Femi Adesina, Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity.

“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,” President Buhari said.
