US: Buhari’s Agenda Very Well Matches Ours by Islie: 10:05am On May 10
The US on Tuesday said that the agenda being pursued by President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration were in line with its expectations.

Nathan Holt, the deputy director, office of West African affairs, bureau of African affairs at the US department of state, made the remarks on Tuesday from Washington DC via a teleconference on ‘Nigeria, a critical U.S. partner’.

Holt said: “In 2015, Nigeria had a very important election. It elected Muhammadu Buhari as president.”

“This represented the first time in Nigerian history that there was a peaceful, democratic transfer of power from one party to an opposition party.

“It was a milestone not only for Nigeria, but really for Africa as a whole.

“President Buhari’s electoral platform was that he wanted to fight insecurity, particularly the depredations of Boko Haram and other forces in the northeast.

“He wanted to grow the Nigerian economy, create jobs for its growing population, and he wanted to fight corruption. Well, the nice thing about that agenda is that it meshes very well with our own.

“That is – those are areas of focus that very much are consistent with US interests in Nigeria. We too want to partner with Nigeria and its neighbours to fight terrorism.

“We too support private-sector-led economic growth. And we are very much in favour of President Buhari’s campaign against corruption,” the US envoy on African Affairs, said.

Holt also spoke on his country’s decision to cut foreign aid, assistance, and payments to UN programmes but pledged continued robust US assistance to Nigeria and other countries in West Africa.

According to him, the US remains the leading humanitarian donor in the humanitarian, bilateral development assistance and the president’s emergency plan for AIDS relief (PEPFAR).

“We are very pleased that we are the lead humanitarian donor in the Lake Chad Basin region.

We’ve got a vigorous bilateral development assistance programme that’s dominated by health assistance, including the PEPFAR programme.

“The PEPFAR programme has really helped turn back the tide of HIV/AIDS not just in Nigeria but across the African continent,” he said.

We've allowed hatred to fed us so much to an extent that it's only foreigners that are seeing the positive side of this buhari.


For sure he may have made some mistakes but his government is far far batter than Jonathan era.

Only the children of hate will not appreciate Buhari, his style of governance and what he stands for.

His plans also mesh with mine.

God bless PMB, VPYO, Nigeria

Here we go again with these neo-colonists. Can you really blame them, when we have a set of politicians with the penchant of travelling to Western nations for medicals and always waiting for handouts instead of solving their own problems.

Their agenda will always match theirs. It is well

What business does a country have telling another country that their agenda matches theirs?

US should paddle its canoe abeg, and let's paddle ours. Like they send us undecided

Nigerians' concerns right now is changing those many "he wanted to" statements into "he has actually done" xyz reality. Eod.


“President Buhari’s electoral platform was that he wanted to fight insecurity, particularly the depredations of Boko Haram and other forces in the northeast.

“He wanted to grow the Nigerian economy, create jobs for its growing population, and he wanted to fight corruption. Well, the nice thing about that agenda is that it
