In the letter, which was made available on Monday, September 30, 2019, Trump described Nigeria as the strongest partner in Africa sharing common goals of expanding trade and economic relationship.
The US president, however, noted that he would love to see Boko Haram and other terrorist groups wiped out of Africa.
“Nigeria is among our strongest partners in Africa. We share common goals of expanding trade and growing our economic relationship.
“We are allies in the global battle against terrorism, and we want to see Boko Haram and ISIS-West Africa driven out of the region and other insurgencies like them dismantled.
“The United States welcomes efforts by your administration to diversify opportunities for your talented, creative, and hardworking people to the benefit of both our countries, Africa and the world.
“I am pleased that following our meeting last year, our Vice Presidents are also building on our longstanding history of cooperation.
“I wish the people of Nigeria continued success as you mark another year of independence.”
