President Muhammadu Buhari has received the President of Chad’s Transitional Military Council, General Mahamat Idriss Deby, at the State House, Abuja.

According to reports, Deby’s visit to Nigeria is aimed at formally introducing himself to Buhari, who is considered to be one of the most influential leaders in the West African sub-region and Africa at large.

Other matters expected to be discussed at the meeting are the menace of terrorism and arms proliferation threatening the peace and security of the sub-region.

Deby took over the reins of leadership of Chad after his father and former President of Chad, Marshal Idris Deby Itno, died of wounds sustained in battle with rebels on April 19, this year.
