The United States of America, USA has expressed its readiness to help Nigeria to unveiled sponsors of Boko Haram terrorist and other terrorist groups wreaking havoc in Nigeria.
This was disclose by the US Ambassador to Nigeria, Mary Leonard while addressing the newsmen on Monday in Abuja.
When asked what would the US do to help the country identify the sponsors of terrorism in the country, Leonard said, “That is something we are very eager to partner Nigeria on.
“I have had at least three conversations in the last two months on this subject. Which I won’t like to go into details.”
She dismissed the notion by some Nigerians that the relationship between Nigeria and the US would crash as happened in Afghanistan, stressing that the two countries have a strong bilateral relationship unlike that of Afghanistan.
She added, “I hear people making the analogy with Afghanistan a lot, it does not match up.
“When you listen to what President Biden said on how troops went to Afghanistan in the first place, it was because they were in a horrible tragedy, over 3,000 Americans were killed.
“That is a different construct. The sovereign nations who have had strong bilateral relations. I don’t actually think the two match up.”
The Commander, US Air Forces in Europe, General Jeffrey Harrigian, also reiterate that purchase of Tucano fighter jets was an opportunity to cement the US relationship with Nigeria as well as curbing insecurity.
