President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan will travel to Ndjamena Monday for talks with his Chadian counterpart, President Idriss Deby on how to contain the terrorism of Boko Haram.

The talks in Ndjamena with President Deby who is also the Chairman of the African Union’s Peace and Security Council followed their discussions in Nairobi last week on the sidelines of the African Union Peace and Security Council Summit.

President Jonathan and his host will discuss the further actualization of agreements for greater cooperation against insurgents and terrorists reached by Nigeria, Chad, Niger and Cameroon at a meeting in Paris earlier this year.

Their talks are expected to lead to the strengthening of the Paris Accord on joint border patrols, intelligence sharing and the prevention of the illicit movement of terrorists, criminals, arms and ammunition across shared borders.

Before returning to Abuja on Tuesday, President Jonathan who will be accompanied by the National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki (rtd), the Minister of Communication Technology, Mrs. Omobola Johnson, the Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, Dr. Nurudeen Mohammed and the Director General of the National Space Research and Development Agency, Professor Sheidu Mohammed, will be a Special Guest at an international conference on Information Technology and Communication holding in Ndjamena on the same day.
