President Muhammadu Buhari will visit Chad on Wednesday to continue discussions with the Chadian leader on how to win the war against the Islamic insurgents, Boko Haram.
Buhari had said the command headquarters of the military would be moved to Maiduguri until the war against Boko Haram is won.
The two-day trip starting on Wednesday will focus on “matters of security”, as thousands of troops from Niger and Chad are stationed in Bosso and Diffa in areas close to Maiduguri.
Nigeria and its neighbors have recently mounted a coordinated offensive against Boko Haram militants in the Borno state, where the terror group in the past seized a large swathe of territory.
Nigeria shares a border with Niger, Chad and Cameroon there.
The President is also expected to visit Germany next week for the G7 summit. British Prime Minister Cameron has urged Buhari to come with his ‘wish list’ to the meeting.
