UN, UK laud Tinubu's leadership, security strategies

The United Nations and the United Kingdom have poured encomium on President Bola Ahmed Tinubu's leadership and security strategies in the country.

Speaking on Friday during a High-level Dialogue on Delivering the Renewed Hope Agenda in Abuja, the United Nations, UN, Deputy Secretary-General, Hajiya Amina Mohammed said there has been remarkable progress in the country since Tinubu assued office. 

She noted that the president has performed well in stabilizing the economy and tackling insecurity.

She said: “Over the past one year, Nigeria has witnessed progress from the reforms introduced by this administration to stabilize the economy. 

"And we can see that the country, creditably, has improved. The Nigerian government has also been proactive in addressing security challenges in the country and the sub-regions as demonstrated by the hosting of an African counter-terrorism meeting last month.

“There have also been other notable initiatives such as the nationwide digital literacy programme and the expansion of the broadband infrastructure to bridge the digital divide and empower our people in this digital age."

On his part, the British High Commissioner to Nigeria, (Dr) Richard Montgomery reaffirmed the UK's support to the Nigerian government in security and transparency and accountability in governance.

Montgomery said: “I’d like to use this opportunity to express the whole lot of support of my government to 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.”

Also speaking, Vice President Kashim Shettima said the President's Renewed Hope Agenda is a policy aimed at repositioning Nigeria as a global investment destination.

As contained in a statement on Friday by Stanley Nkwocha, his spokesperson, Shettima explained that the president's agender is hinged on the core pillars of democracy, development, demographics, and diaspora engagement.

“Our reason for this gathering is less about the certainty of our vision for this nation. This has never been in doubt. We are here because of our place in a world of opportunities—a world that can’t afford to neglect or underestimate our place.

"The Renewed Hope Agenda is not just a policy framework; it is a statement of commitment, a covenant between us and the people.”
