New USA Ambassador to Nigeria

Post  nex on Mon Aug 16, 2010 9:58 pm

United States of America (U.S.A) Senate has confirmed the nomination of a new Ambassador to Nigeria.

A statement by a US web site said a certain Terence P. McCulley, selected by President Barack Obama on June 28, 2010, to serve as ambassador to Nigeria, has now been confirmed by the Senate.

McCulley understands French, and speaks some Zulu and Wolof. He and his wife have two sons.

Prior to his appointment as ambassador to Nigeria, McCulley served as the deputy chief of mission at the U.S. Embassy in Copenhagen, Denmark.

The incoming US Ambassador to Nigeria was confirmed by the U.S.A Senate on August 5, and is expected to take over from the current US Ambassador, Robin Renee Sanders, who had presented her credentials to the Federal Government on December 3, 2007.

Sanders had been appointed in November 2007 by the immediate past US President, George W. Bush (jnr), and will be marking her three years in office later this year. Incidentally, it was also the same Bush who nominated McCulley to be U.S. Ambassador to Mali in May, 2005.

Both Ambassadors Sanders and McCulley are career members of the US senior Foreign Service.
