On Tuesday President Muhammadu Buhari attended the Extraordinary Summit of Heads of State and Governments of the Lake Chad Basin Commission (LCBC).
The meeting was convened to discuss the recent developments in Chad, namely the death of President Idris Deby Itno.
The President is Chair of Leaders of LCBC member-countries.
The Lake Chad Basin Commission is an intergovernmental organization founded in 1964, that oversees water and other natural resource usage in the basin.
There are eight member governments—i.e., Cameroon, Chad, Niger, Nigeria, Algeria, the Central African Republic, Libya, and Sudan—chosen for their proximity to Lake Chad.
