US Secretary of State Antony Blinken has announced plans to travel to Nigeria, Kenya, and Senegal next week, where he is expected to discuss ways to end the Covid-19 pandemic and battle climate change.

According to a statement made available by his spokesman, Blinken will meet with the president of each country to ‘advance US-Africa collaboration on shared global priorities,’ state department spokesman Ned Price said in a statement.

Other topics of conversation on the agenda for the Monday to Saturday trip include revitalizing democracies, advancing peace and security, and a more inclusive global economy, Price said.

Blinken travels first to Nairobi, where he will meet with Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta and other government officials, and underscore US support for peaceful 2022 elections.

Next, he travels to Abuja, to meet with Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari and deliver a speech on US-Africa policy.

He will end his trip in Dakar where he will meet with Senegalese President Macky Sall and other officials.

Africa Daily News, New York recalls that Blinken had in April met with Nigerian President, Muhammadu Buhari during his first virtual trip to Africa since US President Joe Biden came into office in January.

From Boko Haram insurgency to banditry, kidnapping, militancy, farmers-herders clashes, the security situation in Nigeria has worsened, especially in the last few months.
