The United States of America has once again expressed and reiterated its commitment on supporting Nigeria in the war against terror, saying it is optimistic and positive that Nigeria will win the war.
At the ceremony held in Abuja on Saturday to mark the US 238th independence anniversary, the US Ambassador to Nigeria, James Entwistle, said his country was also
committed to helping Nigeria achieve free, fair, peaceful and credible elections in the 2015 general elections.
We must win the struggle for girls’ rights being waged against Boko Haram in Nigeria.
On one side there are terrorists, murderers, rapists and cowards, hell bent on justifying their acts of discrimination and depravity against girls in terms of their religious creeds.
“As we stand with Nigeria in its democratic journey, I want to make it clear that the assistance that we have offered over the years is in the same spirit that was offered to us by many other nations as we began our democratic journey.
“we have many friends and partners who want Nigeria to succeed and the United States stands at the front of that line,” Mr Entwistle said.
He further assured Nigerians that as other countries helped his country along the way, “the United States stands with Nigeria as a friend and partner”
