President, Muhammadu Buhari and the Liberian President, Ms Johnson Ellen Sirleaf, held talks on Tuesday that centred on regional Security and improved relations between both nations.

The Nigerian leader once more brought to the fore what he called the hunger and starvation ravaging Northeast Nigeria following the Boko Haram insurgency, stressing the need to end terrorists activities in the region for food security.

After talks, the Liberian President told reporters that she was in Nigeria to thank President Buhari for the support her country received from Nigeria, following the Ebola disease outbreak.

She said that she came to also renew the strong bond of relationship between Nigeria and Liberia.

The President of Liberia, Johnson Ellen Sirleaf said Nigeria and Liberia would become stronger with greater ties

“I came to talk about the joint commission that has been formulated and how we can make it a more effective instrument for improving relation – trade relation, investment relation, international relation – and to continue to see Liberia and Nigeria as strong friends.”

Madam Sirleaf expressed gratitude to Nigeria in the setting up of the Liberian Army and called for the renewal of the bond between Nigeria and Liberia under President Muhammdu Buhari.

President Buhari was impressed with the progress made so far in Liberia. He expressed hopes that West African countries would ensure peaceful elections coming up in some countries in the subregion.

He asked the international community to continue to support him to restore peace in the northeast being ravaged by starvation brought about by Boko Haram.

“How do we stop the sub-regional terrorists infiltration and attacks. The Lake Chad Basin Commission, comprising of Cameroon, Chad, Niger, Nigeria and Benin have to work with other from other parts of Africa and the ECOWAS to make sure that we stop the spate of terrorism, the effect of which you know that in the northeast, for the last two planting season, they have not planted, much less harvest.”

President Muhammadu Buhari is hopeful that an end of Boko Haram activities in the northeast will ensure food security

“So there is starvation. You need to see the several millions of Nigerians in Internally Displaced Persons camp. We went over all these things that affect most of us in our region and the continent,” President Buhari said, listing areas that discussions with the Liberian leader had focused.

The two leaders pledged to continue to do their best to ensure that their economies get back on track. (Channels TV)
