Nigeria urges US to move its Afriocom headquarters from Germany to Africa

Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari has urged the US to move its Africom military headquarters to the continent from Germany. He made the request during US Secretary of State Antony Blinken’s online “virtual visit” to Africa,

“Considering the growing security challenges in West and Central Africa, Gulf of Guinea, Lake Chad region and the Sahel, weighing heavily on Africa, it underscores the need for the United States to consider re-locating Africom headquarters… near the theatre of operation,” President Buhari said, according a statement issued by the presidency.
