No partnership will resolve Nigeria’s massively complex problems – British Government

The British Minister for Africa, James Duddridge, visit Geoffrey Onyeamma, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, alongside British High Commissioner

The British Minister for Africa, James Duddridge, has stated that no amount of partnership will resolve Nigeria’s security situation.

He noted that Nigeria has a massively complex security situation and no partnership would resolve the multiplicity of the problem.

The British official spoke while fielding questions from newsmen in Abuja on Tuesday, when he visited the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama.

“The situation is massively complex and no partnership is going to resolve the multiplicity of problems whether it is Boko Haram or a number of other issues,” Duddridge said.

“In the UK, you have a strong partner across the full gamut of issues. So, it’s not just about intelligence and hard security and military, it’s about societies, it’s about humanitarian support, it’s about education and development partnership.

“It is not an end game, we don’t get to a point where we would say ‘this is the end of our relationship with Nigeria’ because we got what we want, we set a higher bar, we’re long -term partners.” he said.
