‘We’ll help Nigeria fight terrorists,’ US says again

This was disclosed on Friday, November 13, 2015, by the Principal Assistant Secretary of the US Bureau of Political-Military Affairs, Todd Chapman.

 

The United States has once again promised to help Nigeria in its fight against terrorist sect, Boko Haram.

This was disclosed on Friday, November 13, 2015, by the Principal Assistant Secretary of the US Bureau of Political-Military Affairs, Todd Chapman.

Chapman also said that the US was expectant that Buhari would deliver on his promises concerning bringing the insurgency to an end.

“We heard many stories while we were there of some of the horrors that are being perpetrated in the northeast and elsewhere in Nigeria. And clearly, this government, the Buhari administration is committed very strongly to doing all that they can to defeat Boko Haram,” Chapman said.

“We are involved in active discussions with the entire region to talk about these kinds of issues. But I can assure that based on our experience recently, the channels of communication are wide open in terms of what we are looking to be able to do together with the Nigerians to help counter Boko Haram.

So the relationship is good. We’re looking forward, we’re looking at training, we’re looking at equipment, we’re looking at a whole range of issues whereby the U.S. and the U.S. military and the U.S. Government can be helpful to the Nigerian Government as they take on this threat,” he added.

The US has frequently stated its commitment towards ending the insurgency and in June announced a donation of $5 million to aid in the fight against Boko Haram.
