President Muhammadu Buhari and his Egyptian counterpart, Abd elfattah el-Sisi, have considered a partnership to eradicate terrorism in parts of Africa.
Speaking on the sidelines of the Aswan Forum on Sustainable Peace and Development in Africa held in Egypt, Buhari said West African nations are already in close collaboration towards combating the menace by setting up a multinational task force.
He said since terrorism is a global phenomenon, more collaborative efforts are needed to rein in the challenge.
