Senate president, Saraki Lobbies French Parliament on Boko Haram
Written by admin on December 7, 2015
Nigeria’s Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, has called on the French government to be more decisive in supporting the war against terrorism, particularly the Boko Haram insurgency in the North-eastern part of Nigeria and neighbouring former French-colonies in West Africa. Senator Saraki made this call during a two-hour bilateral meeting with the President of the French Senate, Gerard Larcher, at the on-going COP 21 Globe Parliamentary meeting in Paris.
He urged French parliamentarians to push for more support for the Nigerian government towards resolving the Boko Haram crisis which he said poses grave danger to French strategic interests in West Africa.
