President Buhari Opens Up On His Discussion With US Today.









Global News International Understands That President Buhari Opens Up On His Discussion With US Today.













President Muhammadu Buhari has revealed the content of his discussion with the United States.















He asked the United States to consider relocating the headquarters of the US Africa Command (AFRICOM), from Germany.

















The president made the request on Tuesday, during a virtual meeting with Anthony Blinken, US secretary of state:
















In my call with US Secretary of State Blinken, I asked the US to consider re-locating the AFRICOM HQ from Germany to Africa—near the Theatre of Operation; against the backdrop of growing security challenges in West & Central Africa, Gulf of Guinea, Lake Chad region & the Sahel.




















I also reiterated that Nigeria and her security forces remain resolutely committed to containing security challenges in our nation and region, and addressing their root causes.  The support of important and strategic partners like the United States of course cannot be overstated. 















 Nigeria will continue to enhance collaboration in all forms with friends and strategic partners; all of us working together for greater security for all concerned.




















I also expressed appreciation to President Biden for his welcome decision to repeal the restrictions on travel and visas for citizens predominantly from Muslim nations and African countries, including Nigeria; as well as re-joining the WHO and Paris Agreement on Climate Change. 


















 The leadership of the United States in these two areas is crucial for the international community.


















On our part, Nigeria remains resolute in her commitment to supporting global efforts as enshrined in the Paris Agreement on Climate Change
