Terrorism: President Buhari Lauds Jordan For Military Hardware Donation
President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday in New York lauded the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan for the donation of hardware in support of Nigeria’s campaign against terrorism and insurgency.
Mr Femi Adesina, the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity disclosed this in a statement issued on Wednesday in Abuja. He said that Buhari made the commendation at a bilateral meeting with King Abdullah II of Jordan on the sideline of the ongoing 72nd Session of the United Nations General Assembly. Adesina said the President was delighted with the pledge by the Jordanian government to further supply helicopters to Nigeria.
He quoted Buhari saying that “the very expensive donation of about 200 Armoured Fighting Vehicles reflects true concern for Nigeria’s security situation and genuine goodwill towards a friendly nation.’’
The presidential aide said Buhari also reassured the King of Nigeria’s commitment towards the proposed Aqaba Process with countries in the region. Aqaba is the only coastal city in Jordan and the largest and most populous city on the Gulf of Aqaba
