In a statement on his Facebook page, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain expressed confidence in Biden-Harris administration solidifying "America's regeneration and her reaffirmation as the beacon of democracy to the world."

Atiku, however, tabled three demands before the new administration as outlined by

1. Help Nigeria on war against terror

The former vice president urged the 46th US president to help Nigeria fight the insurgency in the northwest and northeast.

2. Removal of travel restriction

Another demand by Atiku is that the new government should remove "every travel restriction on Nigerian citizens."

According to him, this will help to foster the good relations that have existed between the two nations "beginning with the July 27, 1961 state visit of our first Prime Minister, Alhaji Tafawa Balewa, to President John F Kennedy."

3. Strengthening the US-Nigeria tie

Atiku said Biden and Harris must "strengthen US-Nigeria tie" in order to sustain "the mutual benefit of both our democratic nations."
