The current situation is that Africa is complex with many African nations holding national elections this year while enduring ongoing political and civil instability. Many of the nations such as Nigeria, Central African Republic, and South Sudan are experiencing difficulties providing proper security in the face of grave threats such as Boko Haram, civil war, and regional tension. In the face of these challenges, the United States is dealing with fiscal restraints that require us to make difficult choices. Many nations, Nigeria, in particular, present many challenges as the current status of elections has been in great flux. With over 10,000 people killed and millions displaced since 2009, the security situation is dire. The United States must provide leadership as Africa's largest economy hangs on by a thread. While there is great uncertainty in Africa, there are also real signs of hope and progress. While many of these states are struggling to forge democratic regimes, they are at least transitioning to them. Since our own fight for democracy was messy, this is to be expected.show more
