Jul 6, 2024

Nigeria’s Labour Party presidential candidate in the 2023 general elections, Mr Peter Obi has congratulated the United Kingdom Labour Party and their leader, Mr Keir Starmer for recording a historic victory in Thursday’s election in that country.

Obi took to his X handle on Friday to respond to the victory of Starmer stating that said he hopes that the incoming Prime Minister will fulfil his campaign promises that made the UK voters voted for him.

“I sincerely congratulate Mr. Keir Starmer and the Labour Party UK on the landslide victory they recorded in Thursday’s election.”

May the victory translate to a better and new chapter for all the UK residents as you remain committed to your electoral promises.

“I also hope that your government will promote stronger ties between the UK and Nigeria, and help in deepening our democracy, especially during these challenging times. Nigeria is grappling with issues such as insecurity, education, healthcare, and poverty, and could greatly benefit from the support of the UK,” Obi said.

He urged the new administration to work together with other nations “to build a brighter future commonwealth for all.”
