Tom Marino urges the US to withhold its security assistance to Nigeria


US congressman, Tom Marino, has written a letter to John Kerry, US secretary of state, urging his country to withhold the assistance rendered to Nigeria based on the “autocratic tendencies” of President Muhammadu Buhari.

According to reports by THISDAY, Marino claimed that there were a number of warning signs of autocratic tendencies emerging in the current administration. He further expressed concern over Nigeria’s anti-corruption war, saying “of additional concern is President Buhari’s selective anti-corruption drive, which has focused almost exclusively on members of the opposition party, over-looking corruption amongst some of Buhari’s closest advisors. Politicising his anti-corruption efforts has only reinforced hostility among southerners”.
