President Muhammadu Buhari has met behind closed doors with his Chadian leader, Gen. Mahamat Deby, in the Presidential Villa, in Abuja.

Deby, the interim President and Chairman of the Transitional Military Council, Chad, last visited Nigeria in May 2021.

It was gathered that the two leaders deliberated on the ongoing fight against insurgency and terrorism in the Lake Chad region where they share a boundary.

Messrs Buhari and Deby joined the Muslim faithful to observe the Friday Juma’at prayer at the Aso Villa Mosque.

Recall that President Buhari had on Thursday engaged his Nigerien counterpart, Mohammed Bazoum, in bi-lateral talks in the Presidential Villa.

The two leaders deliberated on how best to tackle challenges of security and strategic stability affecting the sub-region and the globe.

Bazoum, who addressed newsmen at the end of the visit, expressed appreciation to Buhari for approving the 1.96 billion dollars Kano-Katsina-Maradi railway project.
