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.
‘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.’
