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.
