Nigeria: U.S. - Nigeria Faces Formidable Challenges Consolidating Democratic Order

United States has said that despite the fact that Nigeria conducted successful elections in 2011; the nation faces formidable challenges in consolidating democratic order.

US perception of Nigeria's political situation was made known on Wednesday in the latest US Bilateral Relations Fact Sheets, which replaced the Background Notes series - a collection of works by the State Department highlighting facts about the land, the people, history, government, political conditions, economy, and foreign relations of nations.

The latest Fact Sheets said these "formidable challenges" include terrorist activities, sectarian conflicts, and public mistrust of the government.
