The US Ambassador to Nigeria, Mary Leonard says the US is ready to partner with Nigeria to identify the sponsors of Boko Haram and extremism in Nigeria.
This was revealed at a media briefing in Abuja on Monday.
According to Leonard, ‘’partnering Nigeria to identify sponsors of Boko Haram was something the US was eager to do.’’
Leonard said, she had had at least three conversations in the last two months on this subject matter but held on to the details.
Leonard, however, said that ‘’the induction of the A-29 Super Tucanos, was a significant milestone in the US-Nigerian bilateral relations. She said, that, the US had remained committed to supporting Nigeria to fight insecurity. That the US government was also committed to supporting democracy and economic programmes of the government through the embassy.
Leonard added that the US government would ensure that the full package with regards to the agreement between Nigeria and the US would be fully implemented’’.
