Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari has reacted to the news of Joe Biden's election as the new U.S president and has called for greater cooperation between Nigeria and the United States of America.

The Nigerian president, through his official Twitter account, has congratulated Joe Biden as he was announced the winner of the United States 2020 presidential election.

In his tweet, President Muhammed Buhari acknowledged democracy as the best form of government because it offers the people the opportunity to change their government through peaceful means.

He said:

"Congratulations to US President-Elect Joe Biden on his election at a time of uncertainty and fear in world affairs. His election is a reminder that democracy is the best form of government because it offers the people the opportunity to change their government by peaceful means."

Buhari said that it is the voters who have the most power in a democratic system and not the politicians.

"In a democracy, the most powerful group are not the politicians, but voters who can decide the fate of the politicians at the polling booth. The main fascination of democracy is the freedom of choice and the supremacy of the will of the people."

The Nigerian President also called on Joe Biden to start off well and with his vast experience, help add value to the United States presidency and world affairs.

Yesterday, Clacified reported that the U.S has officially left the Paris Climate Agreement, and the world would be looking to see what Joe Biden does if and when he resumes duties in January.

He also hopes to foster greater cooperation with the United States especially in the area of economic, diplomatic, political and security levels.

"President-Elect Biden’s remarkable track record gives us hope that he will add value to the presidency and world affairs. We look forward to greater cooperation between Nigeria and the United States, especially at economic, diplomatic, political and security levels."
