Minister of State for Foreign Affairs 2, Senator Musiliu Obanikoro has joined other prominent Nigerians to congratulate the President-elect and winner of last Saturday’s presidential election, General Muhammadu Buhari.
Obanikoro, who took to his facebook page on Friday, also congratulated the defeated President Goodluck Jonathan for creating an enabling environment for a free, fair and credible election, which according to him, has led to the transformation and further entrenchment of democracy in Nigeria.
According to the former Senator, “allow me seize this opportunity to join millions of Nigerians to congratulate the President-Elect Gen. Muhammadu Buhari on his victory at the just concluded election.
“I want to also congratulate President Goodluck Jonathan for creating the enabling environment for free and fair elections, which has led to the transformation and further entrenchment of democracy in our country. I have no doubt that democracy is here to stay in Nigeria.
“Finally, I congratulate all Nigerians for… a peaceful and historical election. God bless us all and God Bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria,” he added.
