Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Kano Accord was preceded by the collapse of central authority in Chad in 1979, when the Prime Minister Hiss ne Habr had unleashed on February 12 his militias against the capital N'Djamena and the president F lix Malloum. To route the President's forces, Habr had allied himself with the rival warlord Goukouni Oueddei, who entered in N'Djamena on February 22 at the head of his People's Armed Forces (FAP). The situation allarmed the country's neighbours, worried of a possible spill-over; as a result, already on February 16 the Sudanese minister Izz Eldine Hamed had arrived in N'Djamena where he negotiated a ceasefire among the rival factions. The Sudanese proposed organizing a peace conference in neutral territory, and Nigeria's President Olusegun Obasanjo offered Kano, in Northern Nigeria, as seat for the conference. He also invited as observers Chad's neighbouring countries (Libya, Sudan, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Niger).show more
