The President of Chad, Idris Deby, has said that he’d not reveal the location of Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau is, even if he knew.
Deby made this statement after meeting with President Goodluck Jonathan at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.
“I cannot tell you today that I know where Shekau is hiding and even if I knew I won’t tell you”, Deby said, whilst lamenting the lack of cooperation between the Nigerian and Chadian armies.
“It is regrettable that the two armies that is the Nigerian army and the Chadian Army are working separately in the field”.
“They are not undertaking joint operation”, he said. “If they were operating joint operation probably they would have achieved more results”.
He also praised Jonathan for conceding defeat early in the 2015 elections.
“We all know that elections in Africa is always contested but Mr. President demonstrated a lot of statesmanship, that he is a real democrat by conceding and congratulating the President-elect”, he said.
“You all know that when Nigeria sneezes, the neighbouring countries catch cold. If Mr. President had not taken that laudable initiative you all know what would have happened now. Nigeria is still living in peace, you all are living in peace and that would not have happened but for that laudable initiative he took.”
“So I came to congratulate him for leaving a legacy not only for Nigeria but for Africa as a whole”.
