Benin RepublicThe Nigerian President is not relenting in his efforts towards building the required coalition to effectively tackle the challenge of insurgency in Nigeria’s north-east.

Barely days after holding talks with his Cameroonian counterpart on areas of cooperation in the fight against the insurgents, including strengthening border security, President Muhammadu Buhari on Saturday paid a one-day visit to Benin Republic in continuation of the effort.

During his meeting with President Boni Yayi, coinciding with the anniversary of the country’s independence, President Buhari pledged to build on the success already achieved in creating a synergy among the Lake Chad Basin Commission members.
