The Presidency disclosed that the meeting agenda includes reviewing of the security situation in the region, and to intensify efforts so as to end the insurgency of Boko Haram.

According to him, Buhari would convened the meeting in his capacity as Chairman of the Summit of Heads of State and Government of the Lake Chad Basin Commission (LCBC).

He said the one-day meeting will review the security situation in the areas affected by Boko Haram insurgency and adopt measures to enhance the capacity of the Multinational Joint Task Force (MNJTF) to meet the challenges of securing the areas.

However, Daily Trust, reported that the presidents of the LCBC member countries of Chad, Cameroon, Niger, and the Central African Republic have been invited to attend the meeting. The President of Benin Republic, a troop-contributing country, has also been invited to attend.

The MNJTF and the national operations of the affected countries have appreciably degraded the capacity of the Boko Haram terrorists, although the insurgents still retain the capacity to attack isolated targets in desperate search for supplies.
