Togo backs Nigeria war on terror

30 May 2013, 09:21Augustine Osayande

Abuja - The Togolese government pledged its commitment to assist Nigeria in its crackdown on insurgents.

The Ambassador of Togo to Nigeria, Colonel Addo Maman Tchalare, during a courtesy visit to the Chief of the Naval Staff, Vice Admiral Dele Joseph Ezeoba, in Abuja, said this was in line with diplomatic ties which enabled the two countries to contribute immensely to sub-regional, regional and global security as founding members of Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS).

"Togo will do everything to assist a brotherly nation like Nigeria to overcome her current security challenges.

"Without the atmosphere of peace and stability, the region cannot attract investors," said Tchalare.

He meanwhile lauded the Nigerian forces for their support to the Togolese military through a scholarship which enhanced the capability of Togolese military officers who are trained at the Nigerian Defense Academy, Armed Forces Command and Staff College Jaji and the prestigious National War College Abuja.

The countries have also partnered in an operation code named “OPS PROSPERITY” aimed at addressing the challenges in maritime environment such as piracy and sea robbery.

Ezeoba said the visit of the Togolese Ambassador had reinforced the need to partner in addressing insecurity in the sub-region.

maintained that, though Nigeria was going through trying periods in respect of insurgency in some parts of the country, he was optimistic that the current challenges would be surmounted.
