The Cameroonian Head of State left Yaounde Saturday, May 14, 2016 to Abuja, the political capital of Nigeria. The President of the Republic responded to an invitation from his Nigerian counterpart who is organizing a regional summit on security issues in the central/west African area.

For over five years, members of the Commission of the Lake Chad Basin (LCBC), namely Nigeria, Cameroon, Chad and Niger, have been victims of the atrocities of Boko Haram. These countries affected had decided to pool their forces together to eradicate the  Islamic sect from Nigeria and to combat terrorism in all its forms.

In the search for ways and joint strategies towipe out the terrorist threat from Boko Haram, the LCBC countries have been gaining support from "friendly countries" and partner organizations. After a first summit hosted on May 17, 2014 in Paris, France, the Heads of State of Cameroon, Chad, Nigeria, Niger, Benin and French are meeting once again  this Saturday, May 14, 2016 in Abuja .

The main topics to be discussed at this summit will be the assessment of  progress  after the first summit in Paris and the present situation  on the field in the fight against Boko Haram.
