Lagos - United Kingdom Prime Minister, David Cameron, applauded the election of Muhammadu Buhari as the next President of Nigeria.

This follows the former military leader’s ascendancy to the highest office in the country after a close contest against incumbent Goodluck Jonathan.

“I send my warmest congratulations to General Buhari on being elected as Nigeria’s next President. This election has been a credit to the Nigerian people and a truly historic moment for Nigerian democracy,” said Cameron.

Tackling the Boko Haram scourge will top Buhari’s priorities as he assumes office on May 29.
