The meeting involves his Chadian counterpart President Idris Deby Itno, President Mahamadou Issoufou of Niger Republic, and Prime Minister of Cameroon, Philemon Yang, who is representing President Paul Biya.

Insisting that the Boko Haram war must be won, he said the time has come Boko Haram insurgency to be brought to a definite end.

At the end of the meeting today, a communiqué would be issued on the new strategy to be adopted in the fight against Boko Haram.
