Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Theresa May and Turkish President, Tayyip Erdogan have finally reacted to the victory of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Naija News reports that the UK and Turkey representatives on Friday joined other world leaders in congratulating President Muhammadu Buhari on his victory in Feb. 23 presidential election.
The spokesman to President Buhari on media and publicity, Femi Adesina, revealed this to Naija News in Abuja.
Femi Adesina said the Nigerian president received separate telephone calls from May and Erdogan, congratulating him on his re-election and wishing the Nigerian people progress and prosperity in the second term of Buhari in office as Nigeria’s president.
In his reply and mood of appreciation, President Buhari thanked the two leaders for their support to Nigeria and her people. Buhari pledged commitment to continue working with them to advance various areas of cooperation.
Recall that the U.S., China and Russia had earlier congratulated Buhari on his re-election as Nigerian President.
Naija News also recalls that Muhammadu Buhari while speaking on his re-emergence as Nigeria’s president, promised that his second term in office would be tougher for Nigerians than what Nigeria went through in his first tenure.
However, reactions have continued to trail the president’s statement as some Nigerians have claimed that the President’s speech describing his second tenure as being “tougher,” spells doom for an average Nigerian in the society.
This News platform had in this vein reported that a popular songwriter, singer and activist, popularly known as Charly Boy in his congratulatory message to Buhari as winner of the election, welcomed all Nigerians to what he described a “Second Slavery.”
Similarly, a Twitter user had in a viral video burst into tears as she heard the announcement of Buhari as Nigeria’s next president for another four years.
