President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has congratulated Nigeria’s President-elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu on his victory in that country’s presidential election last Saturday.
“On behalf of the Ghanaian people and their Government, I extend warm congratulations to the Presidential Candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu, on his victory… Saturday, 25th February.”
On his Facebook page, the Ghanaian President wrote “President-elect Bola Tinubu’s victory has ensured that the ruling APC Government has been given four more years to continue in office, which, I am hopeful, will go a long way to enhancing the quality of governance, the rule of law and the performance of the Nigerian economy.”
The presidential candidates of the Peoples’ Democratic Party and the Labour Party, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and Peter Obi, respectively, according to President Akufo-Addo, are to be commended for their vigorous, well-fought campaigns.
“…and I am confident that their reactions to the results of the election will reinforce the boundaries of Nigerian democracy, and consolidate the peace and stability of Nigeria, Africa’s giant,” the President stated.
President Akufo-Addo said he expects that the President-elect would continue in the stead of past Nigerian leaders, and deepen even further the strong friendship that exists between Nigeria and Ghana, which has been based on a shared agenda of freedom, development, security, progress and prosperity.
“Warm congratulations, once again, to President-elect Bola Ahmed Adekunle Tinubu and the people of Nigeria. Best wishes for his and Nigeria’s success,” the President ended.
