Atiku Abubakar, the Peoples Democratic Party’s nominee for president, congratulated Liz Truss on becoming the leader of the Conservative Party of the United Kingdom.
According to GOGAN Media, Truss, who was chosen on Monday, will legally assume office on Tuesday and succeed Johnson as the new prime minister of the United Kingdom once Johnson presents his resignation to the monarch.
“The UK has proven, yet again, the resilient power of democracy. The election of MP Liz Truss as leader of the Conservative Party was a hard-fought process, but the ultimate winners are the people of the United Kingdom,” Atiku said.
The PDP front-runner added that he was looking forward to cooperating with Truss on issues related to democracy, trade, and human capital development.
“I join all other friends of the UK to celebrate this moment. I equally look forward to an enhanced partnership of the new leadership of the Conservative Party with Nigeria and African countries in the areas of human capital development, trade and strengthening democracy and the integrity of elections. -AA,” Atiku posted on his Facebook page, Monday afternoon.
