ABUJA, (CAJ News) – THE Central African Community (CAC) has expressed solidarity with the people and government of Nigeria in the fight against terrorism.

The bloc’s President, Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, who is also head of the Republic of Equatorial Guinea, stated this at a meeting with President Jonathan in Abuja

He said meeting Ghana’s President John Mahama, Chairman of the Economic Community of West African States, will follow the meeting with the CAC leader.

“We are here because we have been mandated by the Heads of State of the Central African Community to bring here, and show our solidarity to the people of Nigeria and the government of Nigeria, and to our brother and friend, President Jonathan,” said Mbasogo.

“We are on a mission to Accra to meet with President John Mahama of Ghana, who is the Chairman of ECOWAS.

“We will study the situation together and put in place security architecture to see how we can coordinate all our actions to put out and eradicate the Boko Haram, which has been spreading in a very grave manner. We look forward to peace, security and development in Africa,” Mbasogo said.

He said the CAC had no doubt that the continent would collectively utilize all political, military and diplomatic actions in all fronts to degrade and eradicate Boko Haram.

“We have no doubt that we have arrived at a mechanism for coordinating all our actions for effectiveness.”

Mbasogo thanked Jonathan and congratulated the government and people of Nigeria and all the security forces for the recent success that they recorded in overcoming attacks by Boko Haram.
