Buhari congratulates Biden on Tuesday election victory
Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated the US President-Elect Joe Biden.
In a congratulatory message posted on his Twitter handle, Buhari said Biden’s election was important at a “time of uncertainty and fear in world affairs”.
He added that Biden’s 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”.
“In a democracy, the most powerful group are not the politicians, but voters who can decide the fate of the politicians at the polling booth. The main fascination of democracy is the freedom of choice and the supremacy of the will of the people.
“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,” President Buhari said.
