The European Union on Saturday said the ongoing Regional Security Summit in Abuja will build on the successes already recorded against Boko Haram insurgents. The Office of the EU Delegation to Nigeria and ECOWAS said this in a statement in Abuja.
“The Regional Summit builds on the work of the first Summit focused on the security issues hosted by France, two years ago, which had helped in degrading Boko Haram insurgency,” the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) quoted the Office as saying in the statement.
The statement said the EU remained committed to building capacities of the African partner countries in support of security and development. It added that building capacities of the African partner countries in support of security and development will enable them to prevent and manage crisis by themselves.
