Donald Trump Commends President Buhari’s fight against ‘corruption, wants Killing of Christians in Nigeria to stop

The United States president Donald Trump has said Nigeria has a reputation for “very massive corruption” but insisted that President Buhari’s fight against graft in Africa’s most populous country is commendable. Both men were addressing a joint press conference after bilateral talks held at the White House.

The American president said it was in the best interest of his country and American businesses present in Nigeria that Buhari’s anti-graft war succeeds. Apart from improved trade relations, Buhari is seeking support in the battle against Boko Haram extremists, who for nine years have attacked cities and towns in the country’s northeast, killing more than 20,000 people in a bloody quest to establish an Islamist state.
