The President of the Unites States of America has announced a donation to Nigeria to aid development assistance. On Sunday, February 11, 2018, President Donald Trump through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) announced a donation of $89 million for additional development assistance to Nigeria.
This was disclosed by the US Embassy in a statement that was presented during a press conference. It stated that USAID collaborated with the Nigerian Ministry of Budget and National Planning, the Nigerian Ministries of Health, Agriculture, Power, and Education, and state-level government counterparts to structure the bilateral assistance agreement, which runs through 2020.
US President said this was in continuation of US’ support for development goals outlined in a Development Objectives Assistance Agreement signed between both countries. It stated that, “Nearly half of the new funding ($44 million) will support HIV/AIDS control through the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR). The remainder will help northeast Nigeria increase agricultural productivity and economic growth ($15 million); strengthen education ($11 million); support good governance ($10.5 million); and improve water and sanitation infrastructure ($9 million).”
The new funding brings the total U.S. government assistance provided under the five-year assistance agreement to $808.5 million.
