President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has implored president-elect of Nigeria, Muhamadu Buhari to continue on the path of delivering unity, peace and prosperity to the Nigerian people.
In a message congratulating Mr. Buhari on his re-election, President Akufo-Addo said ‘’ it is my sincere hope that President Buhari will continue on the path of delivering unity, security, progress and prosperity to the Nigerian people. It is also my overriding hope that, during his second term, the already strong relations between Ghana and Nigeria will be deepened even further, on a shared agenda of stability, security, development and prosperity’’.
The president said Mr. Buhari’s re-election is a renewal of the confidence the Nigerian people have in his programme of governance, which is hinged on job creation, diversification of the economy, particularly the strong revival of Nigeria’s agriculture, and the fight against corruption.
The statement continued that ‘’ I commend the PDP presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, for a vigorous, well-fought campaign, and applaud his decision to ventilate his dissatisfaction with the results of the election through a constitutional process. It is testimony to his credentials as a well-established statesman. Strengthening the frontiers of Nigerian democracy, and consolidating the peace and stability of Nigeria, Africa’s giant, are important for the progress of our region and continent’’.
