‘I Look Forward To Deepening Our Relationship’ – Tinubu Congratulates New UK PM, Starmer

President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has congratulated Sir Keir Starmer, the leader of the Labour Party, on the victory of his party in the United Kingdom general election.

Naija News earlier reported that Keir Starmer emerged winner of the UK general election and is set to become the next prime minister of the country.

Labour Party was declared the official winner of the poll after reaching the required 326 parliamentary seats.

Rishi Sunak, the former prime minister, had taken responsibility for the loss of the Conservative Party before tendering his resignation letter to the King.

Reacting to the election in a statement on Friday by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Ajuri Ngelale, Tinubu noted the determination and courage the incoming Prime Minister of the United Kingdom demonstrated throughout his years in the opposition and as the leader of the Labour Party.

The President stated that the party’s ability to reform, mobilize, and position itself for victory after 14 years clearly affirms the leadership qualities of Sir Starmer.

Tinubu also congratulated the citizens and the government of the United Kingdom, describing the Kingdom as an abiding model of democracy and Nigeria’s long-standing partner.

“The President looks forward to deepening relations between Nigeria and the United Kingdom in mutual areas of interest and in strengthening democratic institutions, as well as in building a safer and more prosperous future for the people of both countries,” the statement added.
