In a statement on Monday, King Charles said he looked forward to building stronger bilateral ties between the UK and Nigeria.

“Dear Mr. President, I would like to extend my warmest congratulations to you on your inauguration as President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and send you every possible good wish as you assume the many responsibilities of your office.

“As Commonwealth partners with a deep bond, I look forward to building an even stronger friendship between our countries during your Presidency,” the statement read.

The PUNCH reports that Tinubu, on Monday, in Abuja, took the oaths of office and allegiance as the 16th President of Nigeria.

Tinubu in his inaugural address at Eagle Square also unveiled a series of steps he would take to position the country on the path of economic development, stability, and prosperity.

Shortly after his inauguration, the President met with envoys from the United Kingdom, United States, Saudi Arabia, Japan, Brazil, South Korea, Israel, Cape Verde, Somalia, and Nicaragua at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

A UK delegation headed by Helen Grant, the prime minister’s trade envoy to Nigeria and special envoy on girls’ education, and Richard Montgomery, British high commissioner to Nigeria, represented the monarch at the inauguration.

“My priority is to strengthen our bilateral trade and investment partnership, to the mutual benefit of our two great nations, and I look forward to working alongside the new administration to further that goal,” Grant said.

“In this, the land of my father, I hold a great affection for its people, and my work in ensuring every girl gets 12 years of quality education will also remain at the top of my Nigerian agenda.”

Montgomery added that the UK would work with the new administration to support a more prosperous and resilient Nigeria and strengthen partnerships on trade, development, and security.

Addressing his followers on Instagram, he said Sowore or Obi’s presidency would have done better than Tinubu’s government.According to Freeze: “I supported Omoyele Sowore and I know a lot of youths supported Peter Obi; they probably would have to do the same thing that this government is doing. The only difference is that they would have served as the anaesthesia while this economic surge is going on.

“The youths were more connected to people like Peter Obi and what did they stand to gain from him? They would believe that whatever he is doing is in their best interest.

“The suffering might not have been anyway better, the only thing I believe is that a younger president like Omoyele Sowore or Peter Obi will gain the confidence of Nigerians in Diaspora who want to invest in the country.

“The confidence many youths would have given Peter Obi or Omoyele Sowore is what is lacking in this government.
