The Equatorial Guinea President, Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, has congratulated President Muhammadu Buhari for defeating Boko Haram.
Recall that, Buhari met with Mbasogo in Aso Rock on Tuesday.
Mbasogo described Boko Haram terrorists as ‘dogs’, insisting that only dogs kill people mercilessly for their selfish reasons.
Addressing State House Correspondents at the end of the meeting, President Mbasogo said he opted to visit President Buhari to know about the state of his health in view of the health crisis he went through last year.
The Equatorial Guinean President said he was glad to see his Nigerian counterpart hail and healthy.
According to him, through Buhari’s committed fight against Boko Haram, the insurgent group is almost eliminated but for pockets of attacks still being carried out by the insurgents.
“One of the salient issues in the meeting was that l congratulated our dear brother for the great fight against Boko Haram. We realised that Boko Haram had caused a great havoc that had been carried all over the sub-region including Chad and Cameroon. He is doing a great job. He’s almost eradicating the menace of Boko Haram apart from pockets of attacks here and there,” he said.
Cameroon is a big nation whose crisis requires the concern of all forces. There is no nation without its own crisis. What is required is to seek solution through dialogue and use it to find a common axis. Those seeking refuge in other lands need to sit down together and find solution through dialogue. It is only through that, they can find solution to the crisis,” he said.
“On piracy in the Gulf of Guinea, the pirates are destroying and sabotaging the property of Nigeria. The government of Nigeria cannot develop the area. What is warming therefore is to expect the government of Nigeria to bring the parties to dialogue for a solution to the crisis.
“In Equatorial Guinea, we feel concerned. We all need to put our hands on deck to ensure that there is security in all regions. We have to develop our nations and we can only do so under peace and harmony,” he added.
