In a statement, US President Biden extended his congratulations to President Bola Tinubu on his inauguration day.

He emphasized his administration’s commitment to collaborating with Nigeria under Tinubu’s leadership in order to enhance the relationship between the United States and Nigeria.

Biden pledged that his US-led government will support Tinubu’s government on economic growth and advanced security, among other critical aspects of his government.

President Tinubu, along with Vice President Kashim Shettima, took the oath of office administered by Chief Justice of Nigeria, Kayode Ariwoola, reaffirming their commitment to serve the Nigerian people.

“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. I look forward to continuing this work with President Tinubu to support economic growth, advance security, and promote respect for human rights,” Biden said.

Expressing optimism about the ideas and energy of the dynamic connection between the two countries, Biden assured that the US will continue to work closely with Nigeria.

He said, “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.”

President Biden’s message reflects the importance of fostering strong bilateral ties and cooperation between the two nations.
