Nigerian have reacted to President Muhammadu Buhari’s congratulatory message to Joe Biden, US president-elect.
They took to social media to condemn the President for lecturing Biden on democracy due to his administration’s lack of respect for citizens’ rights.
Biden was projected as the winner of the 2020 presidential election after results from Pennsylvania meant his lead was now unassailable by President Donald Trump.
According to Buhari, the former US vice president’s election is a reminder that democracy is the best form of government.
He said, “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.
