The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has congratulated Muhammadu Buhari, the newly sworn in Nigerian President.
The party, in a statement issued on Friday by Olisa Metuh, its National Publicity Secretary, wished the new President success in steering the affairs of the country in the next four years.
“The PDP wishes General Buhari a successful tenure as President of our dear nation. Indeed, we appreciate the fact that his success would be to the benefit of Nigeria as a nation.
“It is against this backdrop that we wish him good health, vigour and wisdom to pilot the affairs of the nation in the next four years. We also join millions of Nigerians and the international community in commending and applauding immediate past President Goodluck Jonathan for a smooth transition as well as his democratic credentials and enduring legacies in ensuring the stability of the nation,” the statement read.
The PDP reinstated its commitment to the democratic ethos as well as the unity, stability and prosperity of Nigeria at all times, as it is reputed as the party that has nurtured and sustained democracy in the last 16 years.
