Insecurity: Buhari Seeks US Assistance, Warns Of Spill Over To Other Countries by BadRadio: 4:19pm On Apr 27
The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.)

The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), on Tuesday stressed the need for the support of the United States and other “important and strategic partners” in combating the security challenges facing Nigeria.

He said the support was necessary because the consequences of insecurity in Nigeria would affect all nations.

According to a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, the President made the call during a virtual meeting with the US Secretary of State, Mr Anthony Blinken.

The statement was titled, ‘Security: President Buhari asks US to relocate headquarters of AFRICOM to Africa, warns of likely spillovers’.
Recall that Nobel Laureate, Prof Wole Soyinka, had while lamenting the nation’s security situation on Saturday, called on the President to seek help.

Apart from seeking the assistance of the US, according to the Presidency’s statement, Buhari also called on the US to consider relocating US Africa Command from Stuttgart, Germany, to Africa, nearer the Theatre of Operation.

He also admonished the international community to support Nigeria and the sub-region in tackling growing security challenges to avoid spillovers.

Buhari said AFRICOM, which partners with countries to counter transnational threats, should be relocated to Africa to strengthen ongoing efforts to check the security situation, with likely effect on other nations.

He said, “The security challenges in Nigeria remain of great concern to us and impacted more negatively, by existing complex negative pressures in the Sahel, Central and West Africa, as well as the Lake Chad Region.

“Compounded as the situation remains, Nigeria and her security forces remain resolutely committed to containing them and addressing their root causes.

“The support of important and strategic partners like United States cannot be overstated as the consequences of insecurity will affect all nations hence the imperative for concerted cooperation and collaboration of all nations to overcome these challenges.

“In this connection, and considering the growing security challenges in West and Central Africa, Gulf of Guinea, Lake Chad region and the Sahel, weighing heavily on Africa, it underscores the need for the United States to consider re-locating AFRICOM Headquarters from Stuttgart, Germany to Africa and near the Theatre of Operation.”

Buhari said Nigeria would enhance collaborations in all forms, with friends and strategic partners, to work together for greater security for all, which remain the most significant condition for overcoming the existential challenges.

He congratulated Blinken on his appointment by President Joe Biden, and commended US for the decision to repeal the immigration restriction known as the “Muslim ban’’, re-joining the World Health Organisation and Paris Agreement on Climate Change.

He added, “Nigeria attaches great importance to its relations with the United States. Let me in this connection express appreciation to President Joe Biden for his welcome and reaching decision to repeal the Immigration restriction known as the ‘Muslim ban’ on travel and visas for citizens predominantly from Muslim nations and African countries, including Nigeria.

“I also wish to congratulate the United States for re-joining the World Health Organization and Paris Agreement on Climate Change. The leadership of the United States in these two organisations is crucial for international community.

“This action is a demonstration of the United States commitment in championing and supporting international organisations with the aim to build a better world for all.”

Buhari noted that Nigeria remains resolute in her commitment to supporting global efforts as enshrined in the Paris Agreement on Climate Change, which seeks to limit global warming and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

According to the President, the convening of the Climate Change Summit last week by President Biden was a strong indication of the renewed interest of the United States to the Paris Agreement.

“I would like to extend our goodwill message to President Joe Biden and his Administration. May I also thank you for initiating this meeting, which I am confident, given your background and current position, you will use to promote the existing bilateral relations between our two countries,’’ the President said.

The statement also quoted the Secretary of State as saying that he was pleased to make Nigeria part of his “first virtual visit to Africa,” noting that Nigeria and the US share a lot in bilateral issues.

Wow, isn’t that interesting? Bunch of Foolish people at the helm of affairs. I pray God treat your life just the way Buhari is treating Nigeria if you still support him. This government has failed practically in all ways. Now we living like a hopeless dog in a country that should be filled with opportunities, we wake up everyday with no hope of survival, people are getting frustrated while landlords keep increasing house rents, school fees are been doubled and the cost of food is non stop on the inflation scale. I woke up this morning with no hope of getting anything just like yesterday. And upon all these, no where is safe anymore

watching in HD.
inviting us might mean much and not to good for our interest but if that is the only way we return normalcy to the land.
the African command should remain in Sahara and not rain forest. the onslaught should be from the Sahara (sambisa forest) if business is meant.
don't unleash the us dogs and mercenary on the south in giving a hand to the government to suppress it the more.

Awon werey.
Let it come first, then you tell them where to direct it to.
You can singlehandedly tell them on behalf of Nigerians where you want them to go and not go.... okay?
Awon sympathizers.


The government should do everything in their power to tackle the security situation in the country with immediate effect.

Zionmdde:
Wat is all this rubbish na
Questions Igbos should ask themselves at this point
What did those Ipob guys said their aim Is? Protect igboland and ensure peace

What is the outcome since ESN was formed? Escalated bloodshed, insecurity, people fleeing their homes, apprehension everywhere.

Why is kanu still in UK instigating violence? Because he is afraid to come home for the fear of being killed

If he loves life then why is he pushing others to their death? because those obeying him reek of stupidity


Who stands to loose in all these things? IGBOS.

How? No peace, no conducive environment for commercial activities, no conducive environment for investors, Anarchy, kids will pull out of schools, massive suffering. Ariaria market will close up, onitsha market market, grounding of commercial activities

Wat of the politicians we think we are giving a hard time? They are enjoying themselves, they have houses overseas, money keep flowing even more into the face of unrest. An igbo adage says "Ala adi ghi mma bu uru ndi nze
How do northerner regions see this? They will be very happy that its not only their region is burning. U can't expect those who hate u to feel sad wen ur house is burning

Wat will happen in the long run? Innocent citizens will bear the brunt. Wen a region is in anarchy army will kill anybody they want and tag the person ESN and get away with it.. People will no longer be safe in their own homes, take a clue from borno state.

Wat Igbos should do? Stand vehemently and fight these ESN guys, stone them wherever u see them, let dem know they are not fighting for ur security.

As for herdsmen, we all arm ourselves ready to deal with them wen they come.
@the bolded, nothing to be added again.
You've said it all.

We only pray for Duru's mom and family members over there.
What a life.

Ha. We need help

This country has lots of sickness that needs urgent attention before it spreads to the brain and spinal cord. That is if it is not there already.

Finally, I hope this cry for help is not just eye service cry where you ask for help and make it impossible for your helper to reach you and help

7 years ago, he said GEJ was incompetent and shameful for Nigeria to seek foreign help to decimate boko haram that he will lead the fight from the front.
Today he is leading from the bedroom and actually at the mercy of foreigners for everything; from health to finance to security.

Did the president actually say all these intelligent words? I'll like very much like to see the video of the virtual meeting,except,ofcourse, it was pre recorded grin
Meanwhile, why is he reaching out for help to the US when the solution to the crisis in the country is his resignation and that of his entire cabinet? We all know that will never happen,even if the country burns to the ground

May God punish all the sponsors of herdsmen and Boko Haram and the politicians that brought them upon our nation to cause mayhem.
May the people that support and sponsor them all die painfully, and may they suffer so much pains as long as they live on earth before dying in shame.

If you are not one of the people supporting the evil sponsors of these herdsmen,
kindly say A BIG AMEN To these little prayers.

God pass dem.
They will all end miserably in life.

********************* ******************

All sponsors and enabler of all the terrorist organizations in our darling country, from this evil Boko Boys, to bandits, Ipobs terrorists organization, evil fulani herdsmen must all be fished out.
They will all never know peace as long as it is sorrow, tears and blood they want flowing in our nation.....along with their evil supporters.

Especially all the terrorist organizations (Boko Haram and ipobs terrorist groups) killing our military personnel.
Evil, sorrow, tears and blood shall be their end at the end of it all.

Peace shall reign in our nation.
God bless Nigeria

You love your darling daddies that much and you don't want them to suffer the consequences of their evil actions right?
That is why your mouth is too heavy to say Amen or your fingers are tied together?
Afraid dey catch u for your darling daddieswe guess?
