MONROVIA, April 2 (LINA) - President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has sent a message of congratulations to General Muhammadu Buhari on the occasion of his victory in the just-ended Nigerian election.

In her message to Gen. Buhari, President Sirleaf extended warmest congratulations to the Government and People of the Federal Republic of Nigeria on behalf of the Government and People of Liberia and in her own name on the occasion of the election of General Muhammadu Buhari to the highest office of Nigeria.

The Liberian leader applauded the people of Nigeria for the peaceful conduct of the elections, which marks a great victory for democracy in Nigeria and Africa as a whole.

According to her, while acknowledging the historic transition in Nigeria, she entertained the hope that the cordial ties of friendship and cooperation existing between both countries and peoples will be strengthened in the spirit of African solidarity.

A Foreign Ministry release says, as Liberia and Nigeria work together in furtherance of deeper cooperation at ECOWAS, the AU, the United Nations and other international forums aimed at promoting international peace and security among all nations, President Sirleaf prayed that the Almighty Allah will endow President-Elect Gen. Buhari with abundant wisdom and strength as he leads Africa’s largest democracy. 

President Sirleaf also assured President-Elect Buhari of her government’s commitment to sustain the longstanding friendship and cooperation between Liberia and Nigeria which have gained significant momentum over the years.  

Meanwhile, President Sirleaf has congratulated Mr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, for the successful conduct of the recent Presidential and Parliamentary Elections in that country under his leadership.

In her message to her Nigerian counterpart, she said the Nigerian election marks a critical victory for democracy in Nigeria and Africa as a whole.

The Liberia leader said the outcome of the elections is a clear manifestation of President Jonathan’s strong commitment to democratic values and principles which he has personally nurtured for many years as President of Nigeria.
