President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday congratulated the Republican Donald Trump on his victory in the United States presidential election.

In a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, Buhari also congratulated American citizens on the outcome of the election, which he said was keenly observed by all true lovers of democracy and those who believe in the will of the people.

The President looked forward to working with Mr. Trump to strengthen the already established friendly relations between both countries, including cooperation on many shared foreign policy priorities, such as the fight against terrorism, peace and security, economic growth, democracy and good governance.

As Mr. Trump prepares to take over as U.S President, President Buhari extended his good wishes to him on the onerous task of leading the world’s strongest economy.
