US Secretary's Call To Tinubu Endorsement As Nigeria's President-Elect — Forum

The recent call by the US Secretary of State, Antony Blinken, to the President-elect, Bola Tinubu, has been called an endorsement of the latter's emergence.

The APC Professionals Forum while speaking on the call stated that it welcomes assurances by Blinken of stronger ties between both nations.

The Chairman of the forum’s Board of Trustees (BOT), Malam Isa Yuguda, who said this on Saturday in Abuja referred to it as a timely expression of commitment ahead of Tinubu’s inauguration as Nigeria’s 16th democratically elected president.

“On the surface, it was a phone call by a top U.S government official, but we see it as yet another endorsement of Tinubu’s election as Nigeria’s President-elect.

“We also see it as a commitment of support by a key member of the international community for the incoming administration after that of the UK, Israel and France.

“And let’s not forget that it came shortly after the Chargé d’Affaires ad interim of the U.S Embassy in Nigeria, Mr David Greene, paid a courtesy call on the Vice-President-elect, Sen. Kashim Shettima, in Abuja”, he said.
