The US has promised to work with Nigeria’s incoming president and current President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari.

The message was conveyed by US Vice President, Joe Biden in a White House statement released on Thursday, April 16, 2015.

Biden also praised Buhari for showing leadership in ensuring that the recently held general elections were conducted peacefully.

“The United States of America stands ready to expand collaboration with Nigeria on issues of common concern, including economic and security matters,” the statement reads.

“The Vice President expressed the United States’ support for Nigeria’s efforts to counter Boko Haram, recover hostages held by the group, and protect civilian populations. The Vice President also expressed the willingness of the United States to partner Nigeria to strengthen its economy,” it continues.

Buhari had earlier promised to restore military ties with the US in order to properly combat Nigeria’s security challenges.

Outgoing President, Goodluck Jonathan, also on Thursday, urged world leaders to support Buhari’s administration.
