President Buhari finally reaches out to US to help fight insecurity in Nigeria and West Africa

President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, President Muhammadu Buhari, has finally reached out to the US government to help fight insecurity in Nigeria and in other parts of West African countries.



President Muhammadu spoke with the US secretary of state, Anthony Blinken on Tuesday 27, 2021, during a virtual meeting. He also pleaded with the US to relocate its AFRICOM - (Africa Command) headquarters from Germany to Africa.

In a statement, Femi Adeshina revealed what President Muhammadu discussed with Anthony. The statement reads:

"The security challenges in Nigeria remain of great concern to us and impacted more negatively, by existing complex negative pressures in the Sahel, Central and West Africa, as well as the Lake Chad Region.

Compounded as the situation remains, Nigeria and her security forces remain resolutely committed to containing them and addressing their root causes. The support of important and strategic partners like United States cannot be overstated as the consequences of insecurity will affect all nations hence the imperative for concerted cooperation and collaboration of all nations to overcome these challenges.

In this connection, and considering the growing security challenges in West and Central Africa, Gulf of Guinea, Lake Chad region and the Sahel, weighing heavily on Africa, it underscores the need for the United States to consider re-locating AFRICOM Headquarters from Stuttgart, Germany to Africa and near the Theatre of Operation.”
