Boko Haram insurgents

President Muhammadu Buhari, on Thursday said the Federal Government will welcome support from the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) for the country’s ongoing efforts to rehabilitate parts of the country affected by the Boko Haram insurgency.

Speaking at a meeting with the Secretary General of the OIC, Mr. Iyad Ameen Madani in Mecca, Saudi Arabia, President Buhari urged the organization to send a fact-finding mission to the ravaged states of Borno, Yobe and Adamawa in order to see the damage done by terrorists.

He told Mr. Madani that the fact-finding visit will help the OIC to determine the scope of assistance it can offer to Nigeria for the rehabilitation and resettlement of internally displaced persons.

He challenged the OIC to act urgently in support of the restoration of peace, law and order to Libya which, he said, had been breeding the terrorists causing mayhem in West and Central African countries following the fall of the Muammar Gaddafi regime.
