The British government does not have direct responsibility for addressing the security crisis in Nigeria as Nigeria is its own independent sovereign state however the UK does have a moral responsibility as a leading nation of the commonwealth, as a fellow independent nation in our inter-connected world which the UK has peaceful and cooperative diplomatic relationships with and as the nation that formed Nigeria by merging together it’s various component parts and put in place the foundational structures upon which it has developed as a nation. In 2018, The UK during the premiership of Prime Minister, Theresa May signed a Defence cooperation partnership arrangement. This agreement has not been rescinded at any time and is therefore in force. On the basis of the above points, it remains appropriate to address the question of the effectiveness of the UK concerning Nigeria’s security challenges. We currently do not have stats from HMG to show how effective the partnership has been but we are writing to HMG to request the stats and we will update them here.
