The French government has offered to support Nigeria in its fight against terrorist group, Boko Haram.

This was disclosed by French Defence Minister, Jean-Yves Le Adrian during a meeting with his Nigerian counterpart, Mansur Mohammed Dan Ali in Abuja on Thursday, April 28, 2016.

“I am pleased with the cooperation between the Nigerian Defence Ministry and the French Ministry of Defence. I will like to salute the bravery and courage of the Nigerian Forces in the fight against Boko Haram,” Adrian said.

“I will be visiting the headquarters of the Multi National Joint Task Force in Ndjamena which is also headed by a Nigerian General, to see how things are going and can be improved upon.

“The fight against the barbaric organization, Boko Haram in Nigeria is the same fight that we have in France because these terrorists groups that are hitting Nigeria are the same that we have in France.

“The second phase that we are looking into is about maritime insecurity. We are extremely happy to help Nigeria in this area which is going to be a much longer term effort in order to guarantee security in the Gulf of Guinea,” he added.

President Muhammadu Buhari had earlier expressed his appreciation to France for its support.
