Buhari Congratulates Biden, Seeks Greater Engagement With Nigeria


President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated former United States Vice President Joe Biden on his election as new President of the country.
President Buhari, in a statement issued on Saturday night, urged Mr Biden to introduce greater engagement with Africa on the basis of reciprocal respects and shared interests.

President Buhari stated that with Biden’s election, he looks forward to greater cooperation between Nigeria and the United States, especially at economic, diplomatic and political levels, including the war against terrorism.
He urged the President-elect to deploy his vast experience in tackling the negative consequences of nationalist politics on world affairs which have created divisions, conflicts and uncertainties.
President Buhari, said Mr Biden was elected at a time of uncertainty and fear in world affairs, adding that his election is a 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 said.
He added that “the main fascination of democracy is the freedom of choice and the supremacy of the will of the people.”

President Buhari further noted that “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” he stated.
