US: Pentagon announces new military plan for Nigeria, other African countries





The Department of Defense (Pentagon) has announced the realignment of Counter-Violent Extremist Organization personnel operating in U.S. Africa Command to support priorities outlined in the National Defense Strategy.

A statement on its website said over the next several years, the realignment projects a reduction of less than 10 per cent of the 7,200 military forces serving in Africa Command.

“Optimization preserves the majority of U.S. security cooperation partnerships and programs in Africa to strengthen partner networks, enhance partner capability and support ongoing programs”, it read.

“C-VEO activities in several areas, including Somalia, Djibouti and Libya largely remain the same.

“In other regions, such as West Africa, emphasis shifts from tactical assistance to advising, assisting, liaising, and sharing intelligence.”

Pentagon added that overall, optimization efforts retain the flexibility to adjust, as required, to maintain a competitive posture in a dynamic, global environment.
