President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated US President Joe Biden on his country’s 245th Independence Day celebrations.
The North American country was colonised by the British and it got its independence in 1776.
In a statement on Sunday, July 4, Garba Shehu, presidential spokesman, quoted Buhari as saying the Biden administration is making efforts to make the African continent better.
“President Muhammadu Buhari joins President Joe R. Biden Jr, the Government and people of the United States as they commemorate this special day, July 4th as the 245th Independence Day and the annual celebration of nationhood,” Shehu said.
“President Buhari notes with delight how the Biden administration is working earnestly to overcome some of the country’s greatest challenges that include racism and especially the Coronavirus epidemic that has inflicted on the United States, a quarter of the global fatalities.
“President Buhari expresses confidence that given the shared values of democracy, rule of law and inclusive prosperity, the strategic partnership and engagements between Nigeria and the United States would continue to grow for the mutual benefits of our two countries and our peoples.”
