UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has written a letter to Nigerian president-elect, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, ahead of the Monday, May 29 inauguration. In the letter seen by TheCable, Sunak said he “looks forward to working” with Tinubu, who won the presidential election on the platform of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in the February 25, 2023 election.
Sunak said he hopes to welcome Tinubu to London in April 2024 for the second Africa Investment Summit.
“The summit will be a key moment to strengthen UK-Nigerian business partnerships “in order to create jobs and growth, increase bilateral trade and investment, and support your aim of boosting Nigeria’s export competitiveness.”
Meanwhile, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the Saturday, February 25 election, Atiku Abubakar, has revealed the real reason why he does not miss out in presidential elections, every four years.
Atiku told the president-elect, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, that unlike him, he has consistently contested presidential elections because of his “drug-free record”.
Besides, Atiku said that he “has never had any issues bordering on constitutional qualification to contest for the office of the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”
