UK backs Tinubu’s renewed hope agenda

The British High Commissioner to Nigeria, Dr Richard Montgomery, has expressed admiration for the security strategies implemented by President Bola Tinubu, reaffirming the United Kingdom's support for the Nigerian government in areas such as transparency and accountability in governance.

Speaking at a High-level Dialogue on Delivering the Renewed Hope Agenda themed "Nigeria’s Global Ambitions: From Hope to Reality" in Abuja, Montgomery praised President Tinubu’s agenda for its clear focus on priorities and effective delivery.

“I’d like to use this opportunity to express the full support of my government for the Renewed Hope Agenda of His Excellency, the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Bola Tinubu. We commend his agenda for its focus on priorities and delivery. We acknowledge that you have done a lot to put in place transparency and accountability,” Montgomery stated.

Additionally, Dr Doris Nkiruka Uzoka-Anite, the Minister of Industry, Trade, and Investment, expressed her gratitude to the participants while opening the forum. She noted that their presence highlighted the significance of the collective efforts to advance Nigeria's economic agenda under President Tinubu.

Uzoka-Anite emphasized that the event, organized by the Office of the Vice President, underscores the crucial role of international cooperation in achieving the ambitious goals of President Tinubu’s Renewed Hope Agenda.

Also, the Minister of Information and National Orientation, Alhaji Mohammed Idris, commended the stakeholders’ efforts led by Vice President Shettima which led to the convening of the high-level forum to mark the first year anniversary of the Tinubu Administration.

He said the gathering was both to reflect on the last year and look ahead to the next three years, emphasizing the role of the International Corporation in achieving Mr President’s Renewed Hope Agenda.

On his part, the Minister of Budget and National Planning, Alhaji Atiku Bagudu, said the past year marking President Tinubu’s one year in office had been successful despite being challenging, assuring that the Tinubu-led government is an administration that will renew the hope of Nigerians.

Noting that the event highlighted the importance of international cooperation, Bagudu thanked VP Shettima for gracing the occasion, saying, “Not surprisingly, you chose to come in person to show importance, particularly to partners in the diplomatic and development world, that Nigeria appreciates them and that international cooperation is important to us and it is rooted in our constitution, is rooted in our development plans and is rooted in our Renewed hope agenda.

“Not surprisingly, Mr. President, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, and Vice President Kashim Shetiima, over the last one year, have engaged globally and locally with institutions that represent development partnership, multilateral institutions, and bilateral institutions, consistent with our development agenda”.
