Former Minister of Education, Oby Ezekwesili, has advised the President, Muhammadu Buhari and security operatives in Nigeria to monitor the situation in Chad Republic following the death of the country’s president, Idriss Deby.
Deby died on the battlefield where he was fighting against rebels who had launched a major incursion into the northern part of his country on election day.
The 68-year-old was yesterday declared the winner of the presidential election, handing him a sixth term in power.
Reacting, Ezekwesili urged authorities to monitor the situation in Chad, stressing that the country is one of the weakest links of vulnerability to Nigeria’s security.
“One definitely hopes our C-in-C @MBuhari and the Security Team @DefenceInfoNG @HQNigerianArmy are alert to what’s going on in Chad at this time. That country is one of the weakest links of vulnerability to Nigeria’s security.
Keep a fixed gaze on developments in Chad, please,” she tweeted.
