We Will Fight Boko Haram, Corruption, Says U.S.

2 October 2011

The United States government has vowed to stand with Nigeria at her turbulent period, as well as help in combating the acts of corruption from political office- holders and terrorist attacks from the Boko Haram sect, which have been ridiculing the country for a some time.

Making this pledge during a meeting with the Nigerian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Olugbenga Ashiru in Washington DC at the weekend, the United States Secretary, Ms Hillary Clinton said that the United States government will work with the Nigerian government towards a strong anti-corruption agency, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, and other ways to promote transparency.

"As we continue our close cooperation with Nigeria through the second year of our Bi-national Commission, we will set forth our priorities, and they include improving governance, fighting corruption, delivering services more effectively to the people"
