President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday congratulated President Alassane Ouattara of Cote d’Ivoire on his re-election for a second term in office.

“President Buhari also commends the people of Cote d’Ivoire for putting the unity, stability and progress of their country above all other interests. The President applauds the peaceful conduct of the election, which President Ouattara won with almost 84% of the votes,” Senior Special Assistant to the President (Media & Publicity) Garba Shehu said.

According to Shehu in a statement issued in Abuja, “President Buhari believes that the relatively high turnout of voters, despite calls for a boycott, was a clear testimony of the commitment of the people of Cote d’Ivoire to peace, unity, stability and progress in their country.

“The President trusts that in his second term, President Ouattara will continue to do his best to foster national unity and faster socio-economic development for the benefit of all Ivoriens.

“He looks forward to continuing to work with President Ouattara to strengthen bilateral cooperation between Nigeria and Cote d’Ivoire, and accelerate the pace of economic integration in the West African Sub-region.”
