President Bukhari congratulates Joe Biden, President-elect of the United States
Congratulations to President-elect Joe Biden on his election at a time of uncertainty and fear in world affairs. His election is a reminder that democracy is the best form of government because it enables people to change their government through peaceful means.
In a democracy, the most influential group is not the politicians, but the voters, who can decide the fate of politicians at the polling station. The main attraction of democracy is freedom of choice and the rule of the people’s will.
President-elect Biden’s exceptional experience gives us hope that he will benefit the presidency and world affairs. We look forward to expanding cooperation between Nigeria and the United States, especially at the economic, diplomatic, political and security levels.
I urge Mr. Biden to share his extensive experience in combating the negative effects of nationalist politics on world affairs that have led to division and uncertainty, and to intensify engagement with Africa based on mutual respect and common interests.
