Secretary Blinken’s Virtual Travel to Africa
PRESS STATEMENT

NED PRICE, DEPARTMENT SPOKESPERSON

APRIL 26, 2021


Secretary of State Antony J. Blinken will embark tomorrow, April 27, on his first virtual trip to Africa, where he will visit Kenya and Nigeria and engage with young people from across the continent.

Secretary Blinken will begin his virtual travel to Africa meeting with Young African Leadership Initiative (YALI) alumni. In a “Ten Questions with Tony” event, YALI alumni will have an opportunity to engage with the Secretary on a range of topics, including the role of youth in the future of Africa, economic development, democracy and good governance, climate change, and health. Through YALI, the United States works with public, private sector, and civil society partners across the continent to develop initiatives and economic opportunities to support the creativity, innovativeness, and energy of Africa’s youth.

Secretary Blinken will then travel virtually to Nigeria, where he will underscore our shared goals of strengthening democratic governance, building lasting security, and promoting economic ties and diversification. People-to-people connections, underpinned by the dynamic Nigerian diaspora in the United States, amplify and strengthen our relationship. During his visit, Secretary Blinken will meet with President Buhari and Foreign Minister Onyeama to reiterate the value of our bilateral relationship and discuss issues of shared importance. Secretary Blinken will also participate in a health partnership event to underscore our collaboration to combat the pandemic as well as long-term U.S. investments in combatting infectious diseases. He will meet with a beneficiary of a PEPFAR program and a Nigerian health care worker.

The Secretary’s virtual trip to Kenya will celebrate our 57-year bilateral relationship. Secretary Blinken will meet with President Kenyatta and Cabinet Secretary Omamo to reaffirm our strategic partnership, discuss future cooperation to promote democracy and expand trade, and explore avenues to address global challenges, including climate change and the COVID-19 pandemic. The Secretary will also visit Kenyan-based renewable energy companies that, thanks in part to U.S. government engagement, are a model of innovative clean energy alternatives in Africa. Finally, as part of our solidarity with Kenya amid the global pandemic, we will highlight a U.S.-donated Mobile Field Hospital to which the United States is providing essential COVID-19 medical supplies through AFRICOM and the Massachusetts National Guard’s State Partnership Program.

Thank you US for wading in on the security situation in Nigeria. You guys are the best.

But, you guys ran away from north east because of sabotage of your operation in the region by security operatives. Just know that it hasn't changed. It has gone some levels more advanced than it was when you guys were here. It is politics and not religion. Just that the politicians are making use of religion to trigger the distrust.

But we are still hopeful you are gonna do the right thing.

An infidel wastes his time meeting with a jihadi madhi. The Madhi will use taqqiya to pull a fast one on the kafir amurikan.

His visit to Nigeria would be irrelevant.
His visit won't make a human more valuable than a cow to us.

Blinken should be told that the eastern part of Nigeria is only looking for referendum. No more no less.
For idiot that will quote me, go and check the meaning of referendum first

This is pointless, Nigeria is very safe and our economy is the best in Africa... We don't need any form of foreign aid. We are self -sufficient and our gallant soldiers are working 24/7 to protect us

God bless Nigeria, God bless our president.
