us ambassadorThe United States Ambassador to Nigeria, Mr. James Entwistle, has said that his country will not allow stolen funds in Nigeria to be accommodated by US banking system.

Entwistle said that this was among the ways US can help Nigeria fight corruption.

Speaking on the occasion of a cocktail party to mark the 240th U.S. Independence Anniversary in Abuja, he said that US will offer technical assistance to Nigeria through training for investigators and prosecutors.

The ambassador who said that Nigeria’s business climate has improved promised to attract investors in the area of electricity.

“As you continue privatisation of the power grid, through President Obama’s Power Africa initiative, we stand ready to help companies invest in building more electricity infrastructure, especially environmentally-friendly power generation.

He expressed hope for a better relationship between Nigeria and US that will usher freedom for all Nigerians.

According to him, “Not just the political freedom you exercised last year, but freedom from fear, freedom from want, freedom from sickness, and freedom from corruption.

“The last election was tremendous democratic success, not only for Nigeria, but the growth of democracy across Africa.

“As you fight Boko Haram and secure and rebuild the Northeast, and as you strive for harmony in the Niger Delta and across the land, we will continue to help in every appropriate way”.
