President Bola Tinubu on Friday congratulated the leader of the Labour Party, Sir Keir Starmer, following his victory in the United Kingdom (UK) general election. Starmer emerged as the UK’s first Labour Prime Minister since 2010 after the party had a landslide victory in the general election. President Tinubu in a statement signed by his spokesman, Ajuri Ngelale, extended his warm congratulations to Sir Starmer and his party. “As a former leader of the opposition in Nigeria, President Tinubu specially notes 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,” Ngelale said. “The President states 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 has also congratulated the citizens and the government of the United Kingdom, describing them as an abiding model of democracy and Nigeria’s long-standing partner. Ngelale added that the President looks forward to deepening relations between Nigeria and the United Kingdom in mutual areas of interest and in strengthening democratic institutions.
