Abuja –   President Muhammadu Buhari has urged world leaders to strengthen relationships across borders, and be more forthright in intelligence sharing “to curb growing sophistication in global terrorism.”

The President made the call when he received Egyptian Ambassador to Nigeria, Mr Aseem Muhammed Hanafi Elseify, at a Letter of Credence presentation ceremony at State House, Abuja, on Thursday.

He said recent attacks in some developed countries like UK indicated the need for stronger global collaboration and review of security architectures across countries.

He added that Boko Haram attacks in West African countries and across the borders were brought under control after concerted efforts by leaders to ensure joint operations.

Buhari said “clearly, the threat of global terrorism is getting sophisticated by the day, so, we need leaders to work together to stop the attacks.”

The President explained that bilateral relations between Nigeria and Egypt in education, training and trade had been historical and urged the new ambassador to work toward expanding and deepening the scope of the relationship.

In his remarks, the Egyptian Ambassador said building partnership to tackle the security challenges faced by both countries would be one of his priorities.

Elseify said the Egyptian Government had already established strong relationship with Nigerian security outfits.

President Buhari also received Letters of Credence from Mrs Marcelline Paulette Adjovi Yekpe, Ambassador of Benin Republic to Nigeria and Mr Alejandro Garcia Moreno-Elizando, Ambassador of Mexico to Nigeria. (NAN)
