“The President and the Federal Government will also continue to count on the cooperation and support of the Israeli government under Netanyahu’s leadership as Nigeria strives to overcome the challenges of terrorism, violent extremism and sustainable development,” Abati said.

He added that President Jonathan called on Netanyahu and his incoming administration in Israel and other countries in the Middle-East to re-dedicate themselves to achieving lasting peace in the region through peaceful negotiations.

"The President wishes Netanyahu a very successful new term in office and prays that God Almighty will continue to grant him the wisdom, courage and strength he requires to lead the people of Israel into greater peace, security and prosperity."
