Buhari stated that regional integration is still being threatened despite West African countries making significant progress in combating terrorism.

According to him, “The frequency of attacks, the determination and resilience of the terrorist groups as well as the ease with which they raise funds and acquire sophisticated weapons are matters of serious concern which should engage our attention as a Community,” he said in a statement issued by Femi Adesina, his spokesman.

”Equally worrisome is the continuing spread of the menace of terrorism in the region and the growing link between terrorism and organised crime.

“And the best way to achieve this objective is through coordinated regional actions and responses against terrorism, insurgency, banditry, inter-communal disputes while we also put in place policies and measures that will address their root causes including the re-establishment and protection of livelihoods.”
