President Muhammadu Buhari will be participating in counter terrorism meeting in Jordan from 2-3 December, 2017.

A statement by Presidential Spokesman, Femi Adesina, said President Buhari will join other heads of state for the meeting taking place in Aqaba, Jordan

The agenda for the meeting includes review of strategies in fighting terrorism and reinforce joint security structures that will be more proactive in preventing attacks.

Tagged, AQABA RETREAT, the meeting, hosted by King Abdullah II of Jordan, is expected to be attended by West African Heads of State, representatives of governments of 48 countries and a number of key Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs).

At the meeting, President Buhati is expected to share Nigeria’s experience on terrorism and its spread across West Africa, with a view to soliciting more support for pre-emptive measures that will neutralise the activities of insurgents in the sub-region.

The statement said the Nigerian leader will also hold bilateral meetings with some Heads of State to strengthen relations.
