Govt accepts U.S. proposal on security

AS part of its resolve to confront Boko Haram terrorism and security challenges in the country and the West African region, the Federal Government has accepted a proposal by the United States (U.S.) to create a new focus on security as a different agenda under the U.S.-Nigeria Bi-National Commission (BNC), initiated just less than two year ago. And under the new security focus, top military chiefs from the U.S. will join the resumption of the BNC talks between the U.S. and Nigeria starting next week in Abuja.

This disclosure was made yesterday by the Nigerian Ambassador to the United States, Prof. Adebowale Adefuye, during a meeting with U.S. business investors and private sector executives under the platform of the influential Corporate Council on Africa (CCA), in Washington DC on recent developments in Nigeria, especially Boko Haram attacks and the petrol subsidy crisis.
