The President of Nigeria Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris on Saturday after Biden declared victory in the UN 2020 presidential election
Mr Buhari, a former military head of state, said Biden’s election is a reminder that democracy is the best form of government.
“Congratulations to US President-Elect Joe Biden on his election at a time of uncertainty and fear in world affairs. His election is a reminder that democracy is the best form of government because it offers the people the opportunity to change their government by peaceful means,
In a democracy, the most powerful group are not the politicians, but voters who can decide the fate of the politicians at the polling booth. The main fascination of democracy is the freedom of choice and the supremacy of the will of the people.
Respect for the will of the people is the very reason why democracy remains the best form of government, despite its limitations from one polity to another, and from one society to another,” Buhari said.
