 Mr. Jonathan wants Nigeria-U.S bilateral relations strengthened


Nov. 6 (PREMIUM TIMES) – President Goodluck Jonathan on Wednesday congratulated U.S. President, Barrack Obama, on his re-election.

The congratulatory greeting was contained in a statement issued by the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Reuben Abati.

Mr. Jonathan congratulated Obama on behalf of himself, the Federal Government and the people of Nigeria.

The president said he looks “forward to the further strengthening of U.S.-Nigeria bilateral relations and the U.S.-Nigeria Bi-National Commission, which was established during President Obama’s first term”.

He noted that both initiatives “would serve as platform for the promotion of greater trade and economic cooperation between Nigeria and the U.S. as well as bilateral collaboration in other areas.’’

Mr. Jonathan described Mr. Obama’s victory as an intensely fought presidential race and endorsement by the good people of U.S. of his leadership. He said Nigeria, the Economic Community of West African States, and the African Union enjoyed very cordial and productive relations with the Obama Administration in his first term.

The Nigerian President said he “looks forward to continuing to build on Nigeria’s and Africa’s developmental collaboration with the U.S. in the next four years.”
