Antony Blinken, United States Secretary of State, has extended best wishes to the people of Nigeria on the 61st anniversary of their independence.

Blinken said the United States Government would continue to support Nigeria’s efforts to counter terrorism, insecurity and improve health systems.

He said the strong partnership between both countries is based on a common commitment to democracy, diversity, and a shared spirit of entrepreneurship.

This was contained in a statement issued by Temitayo Famutimi, the Information Specialist Public Affairs Section (PAS) U.S. Consulate General, on Friday.

The statement read in part, “As your partner, we’ll continue to support Nigerian efforts to counter terrorism and insecurity, improve health systems, strengthen democratic institutions, promote respect for human rights, and bolster economic growth, including through bilateral trade and investment.

“We value Nigerian leadership on issues including African peace and security, ending the COVID-19 pandemic and building back a more inclusive economy, and reducing greenhouse emissions and creating a clean energy future.

“The United States looks forward to expanding our relationship over the coming year and advancing our mutual interests.”

Meanwhile, President, Muhammadu Buhari, has restated his commitment to ensuring that Nigeria remains united despite agitations for secession in some parts of the country.

This was contained in a speech he delivered on Thursday night at the closing edition of the [email protected] celebration at the Banquet Hall, Presidential Villa, Abuja.

In the speech, President Buhari promised that his government will continue to offer the enabling environment for Nigerians to achieve their dreams “while we count on their support to make Nigeria a better place for all”.
