Chairman Smith on the hearing: “Nigeria is an important African nation, not just for that region, but also for the international community as a whole. This major oil producer, which is also Africa’s most populous nation, is facing a variety of crises, including an increasingly vicious war against Boko Haram, the threat of post-election violence following the upcoming presidential election next month, ongoing inter-religious and inter-ethnic conflict and an economy suffering from drastically reduced revenue due to falling oil prices. This comes at a time when U.S.-Nigeria relations are said to be at a low point.  This hearing will examine Nigeria’s challenges and what the U.S. government should do to get our relations with Nigeria, especially involving security cooperation, back on track.” WITNESSES: Panel I The Honorable Robert P. Jackson Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary Bureau of African Affairs U.S. Department of State Panel II J.
