“With your election, we look forward to enhanced cooperation between Nigeria and the United States, especially at economic, diplomatic, and political levels, especially on the war against terrorism,” the Nigerian leader said.
Buhari described Biden’s victory as one coming “at a time of uncertainty and challenges in world affairs.”
The Nigeria president 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.”
According to the Nigerian leader, “the most powerful group are not the politicians, but voters who can decide the fate of candidates for elective office at the polling booth.
“The main benefit of democracy is the freedom of choice and the supremacy of the will of the people. 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.”
