Buhari to visit Cameroon and Benin

Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari begins a two-day high level official visit to Cameroon Wednesday, officials confirmed.
President Buhari will later visit Benin in pursuit of his consolidation of strategies to defeat insurgents in Nigeria’s northeast.
The Nigerian leader will hold bilateral security talks in Cameroon and then attend ceremonies to mark the National Day of Benin, the Abuja presidency sources confirmed on Tuesday.
President Buhari last month travelled to Chad and Niger to firm up new road map for the tackling of the Boko Haram menace.
Regional support
The visit afforded the Lake Chad Basin countries, including Nigeria, Chad, Niger, and Cameroon, a chance to revitalise the now 9,000-troop Multinational Military Joint Task Force.
No fewer than 15,600 people have been killed in the fight against the Boko Haram since 2009.
President Buhari had promised to visit Benin and Cameroon to galvanise regional support in the fight against the Boko Haram.
