President Muhammadu Buhari has blamed the high rate of terrorism in Nigeria on the political instability in Libya.
Buhari stated this while receiving the letters of credence from the new Canadian High Commissioner to Nigeria, Ambassador James Kingston Christoff and Ambassador of Mexico to Nigeria, Juan Alfred Miranda Oritz, at the State House in Abuja, on Tuesday.
The President disclosed that his administration had made meaningful progress in the fight against insecurity.
“The political instability in Libya continues to fuel terrorism in the Sahel, West and Central African regions.
“Nigeria is not left out of the equation as we are fighting to rid our country of banditry, kidnapping, herder/farmer clashes and insurgency.
“We are, however, making meaningful progress with the support of friendly countries like yours to sustain this fight until we overcome these challenges,” he said.
