Israel pledges to support Buhari

Israel Ambassador Visits President-Elect Muhammadu Buhari

The State of Israel has expressed a willingness to assist Nigeria in the fight against corruption, terrorism and in the development of agriculture sector.

In a congratulatory letter signed by President Reuven Rivlin and delivered to the President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari, on Monday in Abuja, the Israeli leader noted that the two countries faced “similar dangers and challenges in our daily struggle against those who want to terrorize our citizens”.

The latest news regarding the Boko Haram-ISIS alliance underscores the need for like-minded countries to unite in the fight against such radical terrorist organizations, Israel said.

“I assure you that in this important campaign, Israel stand shoulder-to-shoulder with Nigeria,” the president of Israel said .

“I wish you every success in the challenging task ahead and trust that under your presidency, the relations of friendship and cooperation between Nigeria and Israel will continue to expand and strengthen.

“Please accept, Your Excellency, the assurances of my highest consideration.”

Responding, Mr. Buhari expressed his warm appreciation of the Israeli gesture and pledged to work with all countries to their mutual benefits.

The congratulatory letter was delivered by that Israeli Ambassador to Nigeria, Uri Palti.

      As a christian, I believe the problem is the Israeli politicians, the are cunning and dubious so I do not trust them. I want Nigeria to remain a non-aligned country so we can benefit fro everybody. There was once a group of non-aligned countries in the good old days, I wonder if it is not the time to rejuvenate the block once more?.

        A lot of us do disagree with Israel and we can all agree that they are helping in causing a lot of chaos arounf the ME. For example if Israel truly welcomes any actions against ISIS they’d be backing Syria but really they are in fact bombing them! Of course the Nigerian leadership would have to adhere to these rich elite behind Israel but as normal Nigerians we should side with what is right and not what is wrong.

    I love Israel. Their existence is a powerful testimony to God’s existence and faithfulness. Religion and the problems of other people should not dictate our political alliances in Nigeria. If Obama had thought otherwise, the Middle East would be in flames right now over Iran’s nuclear capability adventure.

      I am sure you have not heard of the Babylonian Talmud?
      Go do some research, God’s only behind the normal Jews who follow the Torah, not the crazed ones that promote Zionism & worship false material gods. I doubt the anti christ will come out of no other place than Israel 🙂

      • Sanmi Falae

        Sorry, I am neither interested in Judaism nor Israeli politics. I am happy being a Christian, thank you sir.

        • egoigwe

          You are not interested in something you love? Wow! How do you spell hypocrite???

      • egoigwe

        … and while he’s at his research he should also look up the Samson Option.

    Ha ha ha. Are Palestinians terrorist or freedom fighters? Has ISIS attack State of Israel? We are not similar. You assisted In the destruction of lives and properties in Nigeria when the Nigerian Military adopted the policy of destroying people’s houses claiming territories live in the house. Remember the young married man who was going into his house in Maiduguri, the Military shot and killed him and later sent out his family into the street before destroying his house? Investigation revealed he was a teacher going into his house to meet his wife and children when he was gunned down by the same Military that supposed to protect him. Israel Policy to Palestinians. The Military later compensated the family with a house and blood money. The children are now left without father at tender age.
