President of the United States of America, USA, Joe Biden, has sent words to his Nigerian counterpart, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, promising continuous cooperation between Nigeria and the U.S.

In his message to Tinubu on Monday, Biden said that there have been existing relationships between the two countries which he expressed hopes that such relationships would be sustained under Tinubu.

Biden said, “On behalf of the people of the United States, I send warm wishes to the government and people of Nigeria as they inaugurate a new President.

“My administration has worked to strengthen ties between the United States and Nigeria, and I look forward to continuing this work with President Tinubu to support economic growth, advance security, and promote respect for human rights.”

Biden added, “The people-to-people connections between our two countries run particularly deep, nurtured by a vibrant Nigerian Diaspora in the United States.

“As we further deepen our partnership with Nigeria, I look forward to drawing even more on the ideas and energy of this dynamic connection between our countries.”

The US President added that as Africa’s largest democracy and economy, “Nigeria’s success is the world’s success. Elected leaders owe it to their people to show that democracy can deliver for their needs.

“And the United States will continue to work closely with Nigeria, as a friend and partner, to deliver a more peaceful and prosperous future for our world.”

Recall that President Tinubu was sworn in in Abuja on Monday, amidst cheers.

He succeeded former President Muhammadu Buhari, who immediately after Tinubu’s inauguration, left for his home town, Daura, in Katsina State.
