Museveni Congratulates Buhari, Applauds Nigerians For A Peaceful Election

Uganda’s President Yoweri Museveni Thursday congratulated Muhammadu Buhari for being re-elected Nigeria’s President for the second term.

He also said that Uganda and Nigeria will continue to work towards strengthening their social, political and economic ties.

“I congratulate His Excellency @MBuhari upon his re-election as President of Nigeria. I also congratulate Nigerians on conducting a peaceful election. Uganda and Nigeria will continue to work towards strengthening their social, political and economic ties,” Museveni tweeted.

Nigeria’s electoral body said Buhari, 76, won a second and final term in charge of Africa’s most populous nation after defeating his main rival, former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, with a margin of just under four million votes.

The official results were announced Wednesday morning but Buhari’s runner-up from the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Abubakar, says he will challenge the outcome in court.
