GLOBAL LEADERS’ SUMMIT ON COUNTERING ISIL AND VIOLENT EXTREMISM ...REMARKS BY HIS EXCELLENCY MUHAMMADU BUHARI, PRESIDENT, FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF NIGERIA
DATE: 29TH SEPTEMBER 2015
Ladies and Gentlemen,
I thank President Obama for organising this important meeting. The timing is appropriate and the subject matter warrants our close attention. The threats posed by ISIL in the Middle East, and violent extremism elsewhere, are an existential danger to many States.
