Buhari To Ouattara: Your Re-Election, Victory For Ivorian Democracy, Stability

President Muhammadu Buhari has described the re-election of President Alassane Ouattara of Cote d’Ivoire as a victory for democracy, unity, peace and stability in the former French colony of West Africa.

The Street Journal recalls that Outtara, who succeeded ex-President Laurent Gbagbo after a protracted post-election violence following a disputed presidential poll, was recently re-elected for another five-year term in office.

A statement issued in Abuja on Wednesday by Mallam Garba Shehu, the president’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, said Buhari stated this in a telephone call to Ouattara to congratulate him on his election victory.

According to Shehu, Buhari described the election as a “major victory for democracy,’’ praised Ivorians for the peaceful conduct of the election and wished Ouattara ​a ​successful second term in office.

The statement said that Buhari said Ouattara’s re-election was an opportunity for him to continue to lead Cote d’Ivoire along the path to greatness, in peace and tranquility.

It added that the election was a clear indication that the people of the country were prepared to live with one another in peace and harmony.
