Campbell Wants Support For Nigeria To End Terrorism.

United States Government has reaffirmed its support for Nigeria to end terrorism and other threats to the country’s security.

The U.S. Deputy Secretary of State, Kurt Campbell, said security cooperation was at the core of the Nigeria-U.S. partnership.

Campbel, represented by the Assistant Secretary for African Affairs, Molly Phee, spoke at the 6th Session of the Nigeria-US Bi-National Commission in Abuja following the broad security challenges facing Nigeria, terrorism; banditry and piracy threaten its people.

Meanwhile, the Federal Government has appealed to the US to repatriate more illicit funds transferred from Nigerian officials through its banking system.

The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Yusuf Tuggar, in his remarks represented by the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Adamu Lamuwa, stressed the need for increased support from the U.S., citing $308 million dollars as insufficient compared to Nigeria’s losses from illegal fund transfers over the years.
