The minister of Defence, Mansur Muhammad Dan-Ali is scheduled to visit Chad this week for a bilateral meeting with his Chadian counterpart, General Daoud Yaya.
The visit is coming just days after renewed attacks by the Boko Haram Terrorists around the Chadian borders killed dozens of Nigerian Army soldiers and officers.
The meeting is to discuss new strategies to effectively prosecute the war and bring the insurgents to their knees.
In a statement by Col Tukur Gusaua, public relations officer to the minister, said the visit is in continuation of consultations with minister of Defence of Multinational Joint Task Force (MNJTF) Troops contributing countries (TCC) which includes Cameroun, Chad, Niger, Nigeria and Benin Republic.
It would be recalled the Honourable Minister paid a similar visit to Niger Republic in September 2018 during which he held a similar bilateral discussion with his Nigerien counterpart.
The minister’s visit to Chad will revolve around strengthening the operations of the Multinational Joint Task Force (MNJTF) to enable it achieve its mandate of eliminating security threats and creating a safe and secure environment in its area of responsibility.
