Central African countries have on Monday pledged to join their west African counterparts to “collectively utilize all political, military and diplomatic to eradicate .”

President Denis Sassou N’Guesso of the Republic of Congo who addressed
state House Correspondents at the end of a meeting with President
Goodluck Jonathan and President Obiang Nguema Mbasogo of the Republic of
Equatorial Guinea in Abuja said the threat posed by Boko Haram was to
the entire African continent.

Ladies and Gentlemen of the press, as we know is confronting two
challenges. Significantly, ebola is affecting basically countries in
West Africa. These countries are: Liberia, Guinea and Serra Leone. Also,
the operations of the terrorists generally affecting countries in the
Sub-Saharan Africa and in northern Africa, particularly Boko Haram which
has been affecting , Chad and Cameroun.

Like you know at the last meeting of the Africa Union, the Heads of
State took some very important decisions principally to check the Boko
Haram attacks in Nigeria, Niger, Cameroun and Chad. Following the
meeting of the African Union, the Economic Community of Central African
Countries had a meeting recently in Yaoundé to address particularly the
Boko Haram challenge in Africa and to see the possibility of
ameliorating the grave situation. It’s on that platform that we met with
our friend President Jonathan of Nigeria.

We are here because we have been mandated by the Heads of State of the
Central African Community to bring here, and show our solidarity to the
people of Nigeria and the government of Nigeria, and to our brother and
friend, President Jonathan.

And after here, we are on a mission to Accra to meet with President John
Mahama of Ghana, who is the Chairman of ECOWAS. We will study the
situation together and put in place a security architecture to see how
we can coordinate all our actions to put out and eradicate the Boko
Haram, which has been spreading in a very grave manner. We look forward
to peace, security and development in Africa.

We have met with our friend, President Jonathan. We will have another
meeting with President Mahama, Chairman of ECOWAS. We have no doubt that
we will collectively utilize all political, military and diplomatic
actions and mobilize all our actions in all fronts to degrade and
eradicate Boko Haram. We have no doubt that we have arrived at a
mechanism for coordinating all our actions for effectiveness.

We want to thank our friend President Jonathan for the peace we have
seen here and for his listening, and the exchange we have had. We want
to congratulate the government and the people of Nigeria and all the
security forces for the recent success that they recorded in overcoming
attacks by Boko Haram. We hope that the framework that we are going to
put in place will give us a better and more effective result against
Boko Haram.
We think that with the leadership of the people of our continent, which
includes ECOWAS and Central African Community, and the support of the
international community, we will get effective results for the
continent. We hope that with our collective mobilization we will achieve
sustainable peace and security for the continent.
That’s what we discussed with our friend, President Jonathan. Thank you.”
