John Kerry-PMBThe United States of America has congratulated Nigeria on its 56th Independence Anniversary, which comes up on Saturday.

In a statement Friday, the U.S. Secretary of State, John Kerry, gave his country’s best wishes to Nigeria on behalf of President Barack Obama.

“I recently returned from my third trip to Nigeria as Secretary, and I came away with a strong sense of the nation’s resolve to build a better future”, Mr. Kerry said.

“During my trip, I was reminded that many Nigerians are engaged in bringing people together across the divides of culture, religious practices, and ethnicity”.

According to Mr. Kerry, there is still much work to be done to provide economic opportunities for all, end corruption, win the fight against Boko Haram and ensure broad respect for human rights.

He said Nigeria should provide humanitarian relief for millions of displaced people.

“But we know that Nigerians are hard at work to address these challenges. The United States looks forward to deepening our partnership and friendship with Nigerians from all walks of life, so that we may work together for the betterment of Nigeria and all of Africa.

“Best wishes to all of you on this 56th anniversary of your independence”, U.S. Secretary of State said.
