President Muhammadu Buhari says the stability of Chad and all neighbouring countries is in Nigeria’s interest.

The president spoke when he received Brah Dallah, a special envoy from Mahamat Deby, the transitional president of Chad, at the state house, Abuja, on Friday.

Buhari, who spoke on the virtues of good neighbourliness, said exclusion will create more danger for countries and their future generations.

“We are genuinely concerned, and I am sincerely impressed with the leadership of the country in stabilizing the polity,” he said.

“It was the belief in good neighbourliness that made me first visit Chad, Niger Republic, Cameroon, and Benin Republic when I came in 2015.

“The more exclusion we create, the more we endanger present and future generations of our countries.”

Buhari said the relationship between Nigeria and Chad transcended that of neighbours, adding that the late President Idriss Deby “kept me constantly briefed on developments in the country”.
