The United Kingdom (UK) has hailed the emergence of Bola Tinubu as president-elect of Nigeria.

This is even as it has called on relevant Nigerian authorities to examine all concerns regarding the election carefully and take action to resolve outstanding issues.

UK Foreign Secretary, James Cleverly, in a statement made available by British High Commission in Abuja, said: “The United Kingdom commends Nigerian voters for their participation in the presidential and National Assembly elections and for their patience and resilience in exercising their democratic rights. We congratulate the president-elect, Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu. The United Kingdom has taken note of the position of opposition parties on the election outcome and the concerns expressed by observer missions and civil society about the organisation of the process, including delays and technical challenges. We encourage the authorities to examine all concerns carefully, take action to resolve outstanding issues and focus on delivering the will of the Nigerian people.”
