Muhammadu Buahri ~ AMINU ABUBAKAR

Abuja - President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari, has saluted the resilience exhibited by Nigerians who trooped out in their numbers to vote in the just concluded Presidential election.

Buhari said this in an address he read in the early hours of Wednesday, after the official results of the elections were made public by the Independent National Electoral Commission.

He told party supporters that President Goodluck Jonathan called to congratulate him at exactly 5:15pm on Tuesday, (hours before the results were made public) to concede defeat and congratulate him. 

President-elect asked Nigerians to join him to appreciate the President for taking the path of honour.
