Buhari recalled that the visit of Right Honourable Julie Payette, Governor General of Canada, to Nigeria in October 2018, provided an opportunity for Nigeria to appreciate the humanitarian assistance of Canada to civilian populations affected by the Boko Haram insurgency.

The statement added that with the common membership of Nigeria and Canada in the Global Counter-Terrorism Forum and several other international organisations, Buhari was trusting that both countries would continue to stand together on issues of peace and security that guaranteed a better and more secure world for all.
