President Muhammadu Buhari has hailed the King of Jordan for donating 200 Armoured Fighting vehicles to Nigeria and pledging to follow up with helicopters supply to fight terrorism and Boko Haram insurgency.

The president revealed the gesture when he met with the king at a bilateral meeting after addressing the 72nd Session of the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday.

He thanked the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan for its support to Nigeria’s campaign against terrorism and insurgency noting that the gesture ““reflects true concern for Nigeria’s security situation and genuine goodwill towards a friendly nation.

President Buhari also reassured King Abdullah of Nigeria’s commitment towards the proposed Aqaba Process with countries in the region as well as Nigeria’s willingness to play a leading role in bringing together countries in the West African sub-region into this collective security arrangement.

The President pledged Nigeria’s continued desire for enhanced bilateral ties with the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan.

The Jordanian King had earlier informed the Nigerian President that his Government was in the process of opening an embassy in Abuja in the next few months, and appreciated the support being extended to his country by the Nigerian government in this regard.

He told President Buhari that his National Security Adviser would soon be working out the finer details of the Aqaba Process with his Nigerian counterpart.
