Written by on June 26, 2023

The British High Commissioner to Nigeria, Richard Montgomery, has said the United Kingdom (UK) is awaiting the appointment of ministers by President Bola Tinubu, before taking steps to strengthen collaboration.

Montgomery, who spoke to newsmen in Abuja at the weekend, said the UK government had identified six areas in which both countries could strengthen cooperation and explore “new areas to build upon for mutual benefits.”

Reacting to the stand of the UK government, a government official in Nigeria who pleaded anonymity reportedly said the UK is more interested in the bilateral ties with Nigeria.
