Vanguard reports that the American official made a claim through the statement released on April 14, Tuesday, in Lagos.

Kerry also vowed to continue assisting Nigerian authorities in the fight against insurgency.

“One of the principal challenges facing the new government in Abuja will be that of protecting Nigerian citizens from the terrorism threat.

“The U.S. endorses the effort by the AU and its partners to establish a multinational taskforce to halt Boko Haram’s campaign within and beyond Nigeria’s borders.

“We will also continue generally to help African governments to improve their counter-terrorism and border security capabilities.”

The Secretary stressed the importance of promoting cordial relationships with African countries adding that peacekeeping campaigns initiated by Africa had proved more successful.

“And there are opportunities and challenges at the same time. In recent years, we have learned that diplomatic and peacemaking initiatives in Africa work best when they are African-led. But the U.S. and the broader international community can still help and we are prepared to do so.”

Speaking recently on the issue of insurgency in the country, General-elect Buhari vowed to “work with our neighbours” to ensure Boko Haram defeat.

“God willing, with our experiences, we will quickly marshal support and we are asking Boko Haram to pack and go.”

I am proud of her; she’s in secondary school now. I just want to work on giving her the best. I won’t say that I am using torchlight to look for a family now, but if it does happen, I’ll embrace it with all of me. But the reality of it is that, it’s not as beautiful as it sounds,” she said.
