President-elect General Muhammadu Buhari has been receiving phone calls from world leaders calling to congratulate him on his victory.
The leaders have also praised the peaceful nature of the election and its outcome.
Latest among such callers were the United Nations Secretary General, Ban-Ki Moon, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyep Erdogan, Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, Chadian President Idris Deby, Denis Sassou Nguesso of Congo Brazzaville, and Alfa Konde of Guinea.
Buhari also too congratulatory answered calls from the Kenyan President, Uhuru Kenyatta, former US President Bill Clinton and former British Prime Minister Tony Blair.
In all cases, the President-elect responded to the positive gestures with assurances that Nigeria will act as responsible member of the international community in conducting its affairs.
He called for support for the country in dealing with global terror manifesting itself as Boko Haram in Nigeria.
‘It is disingenuous to accuse everyone who calls for restructuring as trying to break up the county. History tells us that that kind of cheap blackmail will not work as long as the underlying reasons for the agitations persist.’
‘The biggest challenge seems to be that we seem to be allowing moderate voices on this issue to be drowned out by the reckless utterances of a few rabble rousers on all sides who may be tools in the hands of those who do not wish this country well. These are some of the people who arrogate to themselves the toga of spokespersons of our diverse groups.’
