US Ambassador to Nigeria, Mr. Stuart Symengton, gave the assurance when he paid a courtesy visit to Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal at the Sokoto Government House.
He said policies put in place so far to improve the sector by the Sokoto government are encouraging and deserve support.
The envoy said he was in Sokoto as part of his familiarisation visits to various parts of Nigeria.
According to him, he has been impressed by the commitment shown by Nigerians in efforts to move their country forward, and expressed optimism that the potential of the country will soon be realised.
“In my 115 days in Nigeria so far, I have learned how millions of people have come together with a common goal to achieve peace and prosperity despite numerous challenges confronting the country.
“The USA will continue to partner with Nigeria and your state in the areas of health, education, job creation, agriculture and other key areas of development,” he stated.
In his remarks, Tambuwal said Sokoto has introduced key policies and legislation aimed at impacting positively on the lives of the people.
Tambuwal, who described the recent visit to Sokoto, of former US Secretary of State, John Kerry, as a great honour to the people of the Caliphate, said the state will continue to cherish the special relationship between the two entities.
While calling on the Ambassador, who was redeployed from Niger Republic, to apply his experience to strengthen Nigeria-US ties, Tambuwal acknowledged the various humanitarian intervention programmes implemented in the state by the US Agency for International Development (USAID).
