20 April 2015, 11:37

Sokoto - The President of Niger Republic, Muhammadou Isoufou, has extolled the current cordial relations between Nigeria and Niger Republic.

He spoke in Sokoto on Sunday, when a 15-man delegation visited Governor Aliyu Wamakko of Sokoto State to congratulate him on the electoral victory of the President-elect, retired Maj.-Gen. Muhammadu Buhari.

Alhaji Zakari Umar, the Majority Leader of the Nigerien National Assembly, headed the delegation that conveyed the president’s message.

 According to Isoufou, “the citizens of Niger Republic were happy with the peaceful conduct of the Nigerian 2015 general elections.

“We were all concerned before the polls on how they were going to turn out, but all Nigeriens were happy with the peace and unity that had reigned in Nigeria after the elections."

In his response, Wamakko said that the success recorded by the party was a collective one, even as he called for more patience, prayers and advice from all Nigerians.
