The United States has said it wants Nigeria to win its war against terrorism, the U.S. Ambassador, Mr James Entwistle,
has said. Entwistle spoke yesterday in Abuja when he led a delegation from the U.S. to the chief of Defence staff. The envoy said he had spoken on the matter when he presented his letter of credence to President Goodluck Jonathan last week.
He said: “I told President Jonathan that the position of the U.S. government is that the security challenges facing the Northeast be solved. I told the President that the simple message I was conveying was that the U.S. wanted Nigeria to win its war on terrorism.
“That is the bottom line message that I share with the President and you.
“The visit of the commander of the U.S. African Command is a follow-up to the meeting of the President Jonathan and U.S President Barack Obama in New York.”
