US: ‘Great decision for Nigeria’ – Saraki commends Joe Biden for appointing Linda Thomas-Greenfield for UN job


Former President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki has described United States President-elect Joe Biden’s nominee for Ambassador to the United Nation, UN, as a great decision for Africa and Nigeria.

Ahead of his swearing-in as President of the US, Biden had nominated Linda Thomas-Greenfield as Ambassador to the UN.

Reacting, Saraki said Thomas-Greenfield’s nomination would help the US because she comes with a long history of friendships across the continent and the world.

In tweets on his verified Twitter handle, the former Kwara State governor wrote:
“U.S. President-elect Joe Biden’s selection of Linda Thomas-Greenfield to serve as his United States Ambassador to the UN is a great decision for the United States, Africa and Nigeria.

“Her experience on the continent and her strong diplomatic ties across the world will give Ambassador Greenfield an edge — as the U.S. works to reassert its global leadership.

“With the friendships that she has developed across the continent, I am particularly pleased that Africa has a good friend in Ambassador Greenfield. Linda, I wish you all the best!”
