The visit is part of the Biden administration’s increased engagement with Africa to counter the influence of China and Russia. Nigeria seeks to regain its regional prominence and aspires to join the Brics alliance, advocating for a democratically expanded UN Security Council.

Tuggar also calls on the U.S. to leverage its influence over Israel to halt the conflict in Gaza, emphasizing Nigeria’s commitment to a two-state solution for Israel and Palestine.
