Nigerian President, Muhammadu Buhari, has congratulated the United States President-elect, Joe Biden, and said that he looked forward to a greater relationship with the United States under his leadership.
The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, on Saturday released a statement from the President.
He said, “Your election is a significant reminder that democracy is the best form of government because it offers the people the opportunity to change their government by peaceful means.
“The most powerful group are not the politicians, but voters who can decide the fate of the politicians at the polling booth.”
He continued “the main fascination of democracy is the freedom of choice and the supremacy of the will of the people.”
“Respect for the will of the people is the very reason why democracy remains the best form of government, despite its limitations from one polity to another, and from one society to another.”
“I am thrilled by the fact that you are an experienced politician who had served as Congressman for 40 years and a Vice President for eight years. This is a remarkable track record that gives us hope that you will add value to the presidency and world affairs.
Buhari also added, “with your election, we look forward to greater cooperation between Nigeria and the United States, especially at economic, diplomatic, and political levels, including the war against terrorism.”
President Buhari advised the US President-Elect to deploy his vast experience to tackle what he termed, “the negative consequences of nationalist politics”.
In his words, “deploy your vast experience in tackling the negative consequences of nationalist politics on world affairs which have created divisions, conflicts, and uncertainties.”
Buhari urges Biden “to introduce greater engagement with Africa on the basis of reciprocal respects and shared interests.”
