In my capacity as Chairman of the Summit of Heads of State and Government of the Lake Chad Basin Commission (LCBC), I am convening a consultation of Heads of State and Government of the LCBC, for November 29, 2018, in N’Djamena, Chad.

The objective of the one-day meeting is to review the security situation in areas affected by the Boko Haram insurgency, as well as adopt measures to enhance the capacity of the Multinational Joint Task Force (MNJTF) to secure the region.

I have invited the presidents of the LCBC member countries: Chad, Cameroon, Niger, and the Central African Republic, to attend the meeting. Also invited is the President of the Republic of Benin, which also contributes troops to the MNJTF.
