The presidents of Cuba and Nicaragua have joined the growing list of countries congratulating Nigeria’s President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, on his election victory on February 25.
The Developing Eight Organizations for Economic Cooperation, or D8, has also congratulated the President-elect on his election victory.
The Cuban government highlighted Asiwaju Tinubu’s election in a congratulatory letter signed by President Maguel Diaz-Canel Bermudez as a reaffirmation of the will to continue to enhance the two countries’ historic friendship connections.
Nicaragua, for its part, conveyed its warmest wishes for Nigeria’s peace and prosperity.
“Our best wishes for peace and prosperity of Nigeria, while reiterating our unwavering commitment to continue strengthening the fraternal bonds of solidarity and brotherhood that unite our peoples and governments,” the letter signed by President Daniel Ortega Saavedra and Rosario’s Murillo stated.
The D8 statement, signed by its Secretary-General, Nigerian-born Ambassador Isiaka Abdulqadir Imam, lauded Nigeria for its active participation in the organization, which was created more than 25 years ago.
It declared, “Nigeria is a staunch member of the D8 Organisation. The country graciously hosts the D8 Health and Social Protection (D-8 HSP) in Abuja and is on track to host the D8 Centre for Small and Medium Enterprises. Nigeria is also preparing to host the first D8 Private Sector-driven Energy Forum in Lagos in mid-2023.”
The D8 expressed optimism that Nigeria, led by Asiwaju Tinubu, would be more peaceful and affluent, emerging as an economic powerhouse in Africa and on the global stage, and added:“We look forward to working with your administration to realise the aims and objectives of our organisation.”
