UK TO HELP NIGERIA OVERCOME ECONOMIC, SECURITY CHALLENGES 
The United Kingdom will assist Nigeria to overcome its current economic and security challenges, the British Minister for International Development, James Wharton, has said.

Wharton told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja he was in Nigeria to assess some of the definite challenges.

According to him, Nigeria despite the challenges has great potential in human and natural resources as well as opportunities to overcome the current problems.
He said, “This is clearly a country with incredible opportunity with amazing people, with a real deep, strong link and friendship with United Kingdom but which faces challenges.

“The Government of the United Kingdom must help Nigeria to overcome some of the challenges in the overall interest of the people of Nigeria and the UK.

“There are the security and humanitarian issues in the Northeast. Also, there are clearly economic challenges and the price of oil hasn’t helped.”

Wharton noted that there were institutional challenges which UK would be able to help and strengthen institutions of government and the civil society.

“We want to be very clear that the UK recognizes the scale of the challenges and is committed to supporting Nigeria through what is a very significantly difficult period.

“But I have no doubt that Nigeria has a very bright and positive future and the UK has a role to play in that,” he added.
