By Mohammed Mohammed

The resurgence of strings of kidnapping and killings over the weekend especially in the Northern flanks of Nigeria though came as surprise to many considering the fact that the challenge had subsided few weeks before the 2023 elections cycle.

The Senior Special Adviser (SSA), Media and Communications, Mr. Shehu Garba, acknowledged in a statement that President Muhammadu Buhari and His Majesty King Abdullah bin Al-Hussein of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan held a telephonic conversation with each other today (Tuesday).

The SSA, said both leaders expressed satisfaction at the deepening of the Nigeria-Jordan strategic partnership in matters of security and other global issues.

In the conversation, Garba, said the Jordanian leader called to wish President Buhari, a happy and successful Ramadan and to especially thank him for naming the auditorium in the newly commissioned National Counter Terrorism Center in Abuja after him.

The facility is named “King Abdullah Bin Hussein II Auditorium.” The SSA, added.

On insecurity, he added that many important issues were also discussed by the two leaders regarding security challenges facing Nigeria.

Garba, said: “Nigeria under President Buhari has collaborated and shared experiences with Jordan in tackling terrorism and its spread across West Africa, and has gained significantly from the Middle Eastern kingdom by way of support for pre-emptive measures to neutralise activities of insurgents in the sub-region.

“King Abdullah indicated his wish to visit Nigeria before President Buhari leaves office.” Signed: Garba Shehu: SSA to the President (Media & Publicity).
