Former Prime Minister of Britain, Tony Blair, on Tuesday paid a visit to Nigeria’s president-elect, Bola Tinubu, at the Defence House in Abuja.
Blair’s visit comes six days before Tinubu’s inauguration.
The former Governor of Lagos state disclosed this in a tweet on his handle.
“I received former British Prime Minister and founder Tony Blair Institute for Good Governance, Mr Tony Blair, at the Defence House, Abuja, earlier today,” the incoming President stated.
“We discussed areas of mutual interests and how Nigeria can continue to benefit from the amazing work of the Institute.”
Those who attended the meeting include the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila; and Vice President-elect, Kashim Shettima.
Since Tinubu was declared winner of the February 25 presidential election, he has been receiving calls and congratulatory messages from several world leaders, including the British Prime Minister, Rishi Sunak.
Last Tuesday, the United States Secretary of State, Antony Blinken, called Tinubu, emphasising his continued commitment to further strengthening the US-Nigeria relationship with the incoming administration.
