Peter Obi, a former governor of Anambra State, has hailed the UK Labour Party and its leader, Keir Starmer, for their impressive victory in the recent elections, demonstrating a strong mandate from the people.

The opposition party made history by clinching a decisive parliamentary majority, toppling the Conservative Party’s 14-year dominance and ushering in a new era of political leadership.

On Friday, Peter Obi took to his official X account to share his thoughts on the election outcome, hailing the opposition party’s triumph as a “well-deserved honor” that acknowledges their dedication and hard work.

The Labour Party’s 2023 presidential candidate, Peter Obi, expressed his hope that the newly elected Prime Minister will stay true to the campaign promises that resonated with the British public and earned him their trust.

He said, “I sincerely congratulate Mr. Keir Starmer and the Labour Party UK on the landslide victory they recorded in Thursday’s election. May the victory translate to a better and new chapter for all the UK residents as you remain committed to your electoral promises.

“I also hope that your government will promote stronger ties between the UK and Nigeria, and help in deepening our democracy, especially during these challenging times.

“Nigeria is grappling with issues such as insecurity, education, healthcare, and poverty and could greatly benefit from the support of the UK. Let us work together to build a brighter future commonwealth for all.”

With the election results clear, outgoing Prime Minister Rishi Sunak demonstrated a commitment to democratic principles, conceding the race on Friday and paving the way for a peaceful transition.

Sunak, who was seen leaving Downing Street, has tendered a public for the humiliating defeat.

Citing personal reasons, the Tory helmsman shocked supporters by relinquishing his role effective immediately. This sudden departure has thrust the party into uncharted waters, with succession talks already heating up behind closed doors.
