President of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), Thomas Bach, has congratulated President-elect, Major Gen. Muhammadu Buhari on his victory at the polls and also extended an invitation to him to visit the IOC headquarters in Lausanne, Switzerland.

In message sent to Buhari and copied to the President of the Nigeria Olympic Committee, Habu Gumel, Bach said that Buhari’s election demonstrates the confidence Nigerians reposed in him.

Buhari, who is also the Grand Patron of the NOC, was invited to the IOC headquarters by Bach.

“During such a visit, we could look for ways to further strengthen the excellent relations between Nigeria and the IOC. You may also consider visiting The Olympic Museum, in which the great contribution of your country to the Olympic Movement is reflected,” he wrote in the letter he personally signed.
