In a keenly contested presidential election, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari emerged the winner to defeat incumbent President Goodluck Jonathan, thereby making history as the first to defeat an incumbent president in a democratic setting.
The president-elect gracefully accepted the mandate of the people and took to his official Facebook page to thank Nigerians for the support.
“Thank you! Thank you!! Thank you!!
Victory is for all Nigerians. Please be magnanimous in victory and shake the hand of those we contested against.
We thank President Goodluck Jonathan for being a gracious contestant and accepting the decision of the Nigerian people.
The work starts today.
