Peter Obi salutes new UK PM

Former Governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi, has congratulated the United Kingdom Labour Party and its leader, Keir Starmer, for recording a historic victory in Thursday’s election in that country.

The opposition party won a huge parliamentary majority in the country’s general election, unseating the incumbent Conservatives after 14 years.

Obi, who reacted to the development via his official X account on Friday, described the victory as an honour well deserved.

The 2023 Presidential flag bearer of the Labour Party said he hopes the new Prime Minister will follow his campaign promises that made the UK voters give him their mandate.

He said, “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. Let us work together to build a brighter future commonwealth for all.”

Meanwhile, the outgoing Prime Minister, Rishi Sunak, conceded defeat on Friday.

Sunak, who was seen leaving Downing Street, has tendered a public for the humiliating defeat.

He also announced an immediate resignation as the leader of the Conservatives.
