US, France congratulate Tinubu on his win at 2023 Presidential Election
The United States of America has congratulated Bola Ahmed Tinubu of the APC on his victory at the 2023 presidential election.
A statement released by United States Department spokesman, Ned Price, read: “The United States congratulates the people of Nigeria, president-elect Tinubu and all the political leaders.”
“This competitive election represents a new period for Nigerian politics and democracy.”
Price also acknowledged the discontent among some Nigerians over the validity of the results.
“We understand that many Nigerians and some of the parties have expressed frustration about the manner in which the process was conducted,” he said.
“Nigerians are clearly within their rights to have such concerns and should have high expectations for their electoral process.”
“We call on all parties to refrain from violence or inflammatory rhetoric at this critical time,” Price added.
Similarly, the president of France, Emmanuel Macron has congratulated Tinubu.
The President-elect confirmed this to newsmen after presenting his Certificate of Return to President Buhari in his country home, Daura, Katsina State, on Wednesday night, March 1.
Tinubu, who was reacting to questions on messages of congratulations he so far received since his declaration by INEC as President-elect, said: “Oh very many, many of that, in fact as far as Europe, the stock market reacted positively well, there was a goodwill message from Macron, the President of France.”
On his mission to Daura, the president-elect said, “I came to present the certificate of return to him (Buhari) as the party leader and commend his efforts in supporting democracy in Africa.”
