Analysis by Ione Wells Political correspondent

E get three main tins wey Boris Johnson want make im legacy be – achieving Brexit, di Covid vaccine roll out, and di UK support for Ukraine.

I bin ask im close padi if dem tink say im go cause trouble for pesin wey go replace am as prime minister.

Di pesin say e go cause trouble if im tink say im successor “dey go soft” on di UK response to di Ukraine war.

Boris Johnson also tok for one BBC Radio 4 interview say di only tin wey go make am consider resigning go be if dem ask am to give up support for Ukraine.

Clearly, no be di case be dat.

E dey unlikely say anyone fit ask am to give up im support sake of say na one of di few tins wey go actually unite di Conversative Party towards di end of im tenure.

Both candidates wey wan become next PM don pledge to continue di UK aid, but Boris Johnson get close relationship wit President Zelensky wey go dey hard to emulate.

Wen di Ukraine war dey im early weeks, and scenes of terror dey for our screens everi evening, pipo wey witness calls between di two leaders say dem still dey exchange jokes and make references to Shakespeare play wey dem enjoy.

Oda world leaders don also pay tribute to Ukraine as di kontri mark dia 31 years since dem gain independence from Russia.

US President Joe Biden say Ukrainians don “inspire di world wit dia extraordinary courage and dedication to freedom”

Oga Biden also confirm $3bn (£2.5bn) of fresh US military support for Ukraine – di biggest American package yet – wey go help Ukraine to acquire weaponry and equipment.

Oga Zelensky say im dey grateful to di US for dia “unwavering support”.

Di Ukrainian president don vow to “liberate” all of im kontri territories wey Russia occupy without “any concession or compromise”.
