President MUHAMMADU BUHARI has called on world leaders to strengthen relationships across borders, and be more forthright in intelligence sharing to curb the growing sophistication in global terrorism.
Receiving the Egyptian Ambassador to Nigeria, Mr. ASEEM ELSEIFY, at a Letter of Credence presentation ceremony in the State House on Thursday, President BUHARI said the recent attacks in some developed countries, like the United Kingdom, clearly show a need for stronger global collaboration and review of security architectures across countries.
The President noted that Boko Haram attacks within West African countries and across the borders were brought under control after concerted efforts by leaders to ensure joint operations.
In his remarks, Mr. ELSEIFY said building partnership to tackle security challenges faced by both countries would be one of his priorities.
President BUHARI also received Letters of Credence from Ambassador of Benin Republic to Nigeria, Mrs. MARCELLINE YEKPE and Ambassador of Mexico to Nigeria, Mr ALEJANDRO MORENO-ELIZANDO.
