The Nigerian President, Goodluck Jonathan, has congratulated British Prime Minister, David Cameron, and the Conservative Party of Great Britain on their victory in the country’s general elections.

Jonathan assures Cameron and the Conservative Party of the best wishes of the government and people of Nigeria as they prepare to form a new British government backed by the clear majority in Parliament, which they won in Thursday May 7, 2015 elections.

According to a statement by the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Reuben Abati, the President expects that the historic relationship between Nigeria and Britain which received a significant boost during the past five years of his Presidency in Nigeria and Cameron’s first term in office, would continue to blossom in coming years for the benefit of both countries and their citizens.

Jonathan particularly hopes that both countries will continue to strengthen current bilateral cooperation between them in critical areas such as the fight against insurgency and terrorism, education, trade, infrastructure and the achievement of Nigeria’s development targets.


Jonathan wished Cameron a very successful new term in office, trusting that he will continue to serve the people of Britain and the global community to the best of his immense God-given abilities.
