President Buhari Seeks US Support In Tacking Insecurity, Calls for Relocation of AFRICOM HQ To Africa

President Muhammadu Buhari today urged the United States to reconsider relocating US Africa Command (AFRICOM) from Stuttgart, Germany, to Africa, nearer the Theatre of Operation, urging the international community to support Nigeria and the sub-region in tackling growing security challenges to avoid spillovers.

 

President Buhari congratulated Blinken on his appointment by President Joe Biden, and commended the United States for the decision to repeal the immigration restriction known as the “Muslim ban’’, re-joining the World Health Organization (WHO) and Paris Agreement on Climate Change.

 

President Buhari, in a virtual meeting with the US Secretary of State, Mr. Anthony Blinken, 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.

 

The Secretary of State said he was pleased to make Nigeria part of his “first virtual visit to Africa,” disclosing that areas of discussion with Nigeria would include “how to build our economies back after the COVID-19 pandemic, security for vulnerable communities, and climate issues.”
