Former British Prime Minister, Tony Blair paid a courtesy visit to Nigeria and to congratulate Gen. Muhammadu Buhari on wednesday. He expressed confidence in the ability of Nigerians to experience greater times ahead. He said this to newsmen in Abuja. He also expressed readiness and support to the incoming administration in whatever capacity the country needed it. He said the recent general elections made it obvious that the future and destiny of Nigeria lay in the hand of its Citizens. He said in the last few weeks, Nigeria had earned respect thoughout the world.
“I just want to say to the President-elect that there is tremendous support for you and the country at this moment, and all of us, in whatever way we can stand, are ready to support you and help you. It is a moment of great challenges which bothers on the life of the people as well as their security and so on. If the same spirit and character that defined the election can be taken through these coming years to address the challenges, I think we can all have great confidence in the times ahead. There is enormous support for Nigeria now in the international community. The support takes into consideration the challenges that lie ahead and there is great confidence in the country.”
