US President Donald Trump Approves Fresh $89m Development Assistance To Nigeria

President Donald Trump through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) has announced a donation of $89 million in additional development assistance to Nigeria.





 This he said was in continuation of US’ support for development goals outlined in a Development Objectives Assistance Agreement signed between both countries.


A statement made available to newsmen in Abuja on Sunday by the US embassy 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 among others to structure the bilateral assistance agreement, which runs through 2020.


The statement reads in part: “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 ($10.5million); 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. Our strong partnership with Nigeria and its institutions will help Nigeria’s efforts to improve its health, education, agriculture and governance systems where they are needed most throughout the country.

  2. Buhari must die a pitiful death. $15 million for northeast? What about the other regions?
    Trump just fall my hands. Nigeria doesn't need that money. Buhari is the worst thing to happen to Nigeria. I wish his father had worn a condom the night he was conceived. We wouldn't have been in this mess. Shame on him and his generation.

  5. Which money? In your myopic thinking.
    USAID and other international agencies don't hand over such donations o. They use a larger chunk of it to finance logistics ...... Accommodation in 5* hotels, Transport, wages, research and reports. Only a few $ actually trickle down to the actual project and when it does, they are the one who gives the contracts out themselves.

    A total of $808million in 5years and nothing really tangible, who is fooling who?
