Envoy canvasses support for incoming Tinubu administration

The Nigerian High Commissioner to Islamic Republic of Pakistan, Maldives and Afghanistan, Ambassador Mohammed Bello Abioye, has called on Nigerians, irrespective of political affiliations to give the incoming administration of the president- elect, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu maximum support.

Abioye said Tinubu is well prepared for the job and he is up to the task. He added that Tinubu needs the support of all to take Nigeria to a greater height.

The envoy during a video conference interview with newsmen hailed President Muhammadu Buhari for laying a solid foundation for Tinubu to build upon.

On his stewardship in Pakistan, Abioye said,” Nigeria and Pakistan enjoy very cordial relationship diplomatically, politically and economically and we have been building on that.”

The envoy said the Nigeria embassy has opened talks with the Pakistani government on some areas of collaborative effort and partnership to move the present level of trade volume between the two countries up.

“Areas where Nigeria can collaborate with Pakistan include education, agriculture, pharmaceutical, security, real estate, information technology and textiles. I recall that some 30 years ago, we used to have Pakistani coming to teach in Nigerian schools. Pakistan also had robust textile industry which Nigeria can learn from,” Abioye stated.
