President Buhari decried the situation where over 6,000 Nigerians are in Libya with the hope of crossing the Mediterranean to Europe.

He also noted that the humanitarian crisis arising from Libya’s instability has affected over 30 million people in the Lake Chad region who depend on the Lake for farming, fishing and animal husbandry.
