The President-elect, General Muhammadu Buhari, has sent a goodwill message to David Cameron, the Prime Minister of Britain, congratulating him on his victory in the just-concluded elections in his country.
In a statement released in Abuja on Saturday, General Buhari said he looked forward to collaborating with the British government led by Mr. Cameron, after he takes over power in Nigeria on May 29.
“Nigeria and the Britain have enjoyed good relationships, and we look forward to developing even stronger ties,” he said.
Buhari also commended Mr. Cameron for the role that the British government played before, during and after the Nigerian elections.
“Britain, the US, EU, ECOWAS, AU and the UN have played vital roles in ensuring that democratic norms were adhered to during our elections. Their role in the smooth outcome of the just concluded Nigerian elections can never be over emphasised,” he said.
He said he looked forward to furthering the “special, warm and friendly relationships” between the government and people of Nigeria and the United Kingdom under the new government of Mr. Cameron.
“IPOB is being sponsored by those I will call the Coalition of the politically disgruntled and the treasury looters. They believe that by sponsoring this group to destabilize the country and trigger chaos, they will realize their ambition of escaping justice and then be free to dip their hands into the nation’s treasury again.”
