Reactions As Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair Pledges Support For Tinubu's Administration

According to Vanguard, Sir Tony Blair, a former British Prime Minister, has stated his willingness to support the future administration of Ahmed Bola Tinubu, Nigeria's President-elect.

According to a statement issued on Tuesday in Abuja by Tinubu's media aide, Abdulaziz Abdulaziz, Blair made the vow when he met the president-elect at the Defence House.

He stated that the Tony Blair Institute for Global Change, which he created, will be a willing partner of the Tinubu administration, particularly in prioritising and delivering on its aims.

Blair stated that, since leaving office as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, he has been working with governments all around the world to assist them in carrying out their responsibilities.

He stated that the Blair Institute has a project in Nigeria and that he thought it was his responsibility to meet with Nigeria's incoming president to grasp the administration's intentions.

"Being in government today is difficult anywhere in the world; you have things happening around the world that affect you and for which you can't do much," Blair added.

A Facebook user identified as Kent Ekpe said, "We are not surprised because he was one of the foreign initiators of APC."

Joseph-Chinedu Kalu said, "Colonialists and imperialists' interests have to be protected."
