​The UK fully supports the territorial integrity of Nigeria and President Buhari's commitment to work for a secure and prosperous Nigeria. We are committed to working with Nigeria to help tackle threats to national security and to address the underlying causes of instability which exist within Nigeria.

We echo President Buhari's calls for calm and reconciliation between the ethnic groups and communities that make up and contribute to the strength and diversity of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
