||<p>We are deeply concerned by the ongoing violence across Nigeria and the devastating
impact it has had on affected communities. It is essential that both the Federal and
State Governments in Nigeria address the drivers of conflict by working to develop
solutions that meet the needs of all the communities affected. The UK and Nigeria
have a security and defence partnership, signed during the Prime Minister's visit.
We support the Nigerian authorities in improving security and in order to enable economic
growth. The UK is also providing humanitarian and development aid to Nigeria, investing
over £300 million over the next five years.</p>
