US Donates $5bn To MNJTF For Fight Against Boko Haram. by Sunnybobo3(m): 7:56pm On Jun 15, 2015
The United States has announced a $5 billion contribution to the Multinational Joint Task Force (MNJTF) in order to boost military operations against Boko Haram insurgency. Linda Thomas-Greenfield, the US assistant secretary, Bureau of African Affairs, announced this at a news briefing via telephone from the African Union Summit on Monday.

“We have been working with Nigeria as well as the African countries innovation to address their concerns about Boko Haram because we don’t see this as just a Nigerian problem,” NAN quoted her as saying. “We are having discussions with President Buhari on how we might bolster our support. We have already been working with them and providing information. “We are providing some training and support and we’ll love to work with the new administration to see how we might increase the level of support to Nigeria.

“At the same time, we’ve just announced at the venue of the AU, a five billion dollar contribution to the Multinational Task Force. We are also providing some equipment and support and we have a number of meetings with the countries who are members of the Multinational Joint Task Force to look at other areas we might support.” Thomas-Greenfield said that Africa had faced “some really horrendous terrorist attacks” over the past two years, citing the West Gate and Garissa University attacks in Kenya and Boko Haram attacks, particularly the kidnapping of the Chibok girls, in Borno state.

“While I would not say Africa is under siege, Africa has some major security challenges that require a very strong and very concerted strategic effort by African countries and partners to address the security concerns of Africa,” she continued.

“The United States is providing a strong support to AU on security, as it has a strong partnership with Africa on security. We are working closely with the Lake Chad Basin countries: Nigeria, Chad, Niger and Cameroon to address the issue of Boko Haram.” She said America had so far trained some 250,000 African peacekeepers, and expressed its highest commitment to security on the continent. The US envoy also used the opportunity to express support for the warrant of arrest issued by the International Criminal Court (ICC) against Sudan’s President Omar Al-Bashir.

“The United States frowns at plans by some African leaders to subvert the constitution to extend their terms in office. US only supports two-term limit in office,” she said. Thomas-Greenfield’s announcement is the second of such hefty donation to MNJTF in three days. On Saturday, President Muhammadu Buhari ordered the release of $21 million (out of the $100 million pledged by Nigeria) to the regional task force.

First Major Laudable Achievement of this Government.

Kudos Mr President! The Foreign Trips Finally Paid off. This support alone is way more than what Nigeria would have been able to budget to fight this insurgency.

Kudos again Mr President!

Think about how much they've contributed to Iraq, to Libya, to ISIS when they were fighting the Syrian government, or maybe think about how much they contributed to the Taliban and to Osama to subdue USSR, then pray a little for Nigeria!

I see Nigeria turning into another Somalia with this our new found friend in USA.

Its not uhuru yet for Nigerians because I'm still wary of the terms of this agreement since it was our Daura President that lobbied for it.

Now janjaweedianss, the floor is open for your insults though it doesn't change the fact that Buhari is a Dullard

Mark my words : After 4yrs of buhari's administration, Buhari will boast if not for any other thing but elimination of Boko haram which grew stronger in GEJ administration cos of his incompetence.

I see people in few years to come saying a General is no doubt a General That he has lived up to his name!
