President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari has sent a congratulatory message to the US President-Elect Joe Baiden, saying that the most powerful group is not the politicians, but voters who can decide the fate of the politicians at the polling booth.

The president said this in a tweet via his official Twitter handle, where he also stated that Joe Baiden's election is an indication that democracy is the best form of government because it offers the people the opportunity to change their government by peaceful means.

"Congratulations to US President-Elect Joe Biden on his election at a time of uncertainty and fear in world affairs. His election is a reminder that democracy is the best form of government because it offers the people the opportunity to change their government by peaceful means.

"In a democracy, the most powerful group is not the politicians, but voters who can decide the fate of the politicians at the polling booth. The main fascination of democracy is the freedom of choice and the supremacy of the will of the people.

"Respect for the will of the people is the very reason why democracy remains the best form of government, despite its limitations from one polity to another, and from one society to another.

"President-Elect Biden’s remarkable track record gives us hope that he will add value to the presidency and world affairs. We look forward to greater cooperation between Nigeria and the United States, especially at economic, diplomatic, political, and security levels."

Buhari went further to urge the US President-Elect to make use of his vast experience to tackle the lapses in national politics across the world and to introduce greater engagement with Africa.

"I urge Mr. Biden to deploy his vast experience in tackling the negative consequences of nationalist politics on world affairs—which have created divisions and uncertainties—and to introduce greater engagement with Africa on the basis of reciprocal respect and shared interests," he added.

Joe Baiden was elected the 46th president of the United States on Saturday, defeating the incumbent president, Donald Trump to a vote count of 74,939,294, to 70,636,205, and an electoral vote 290 to 214.
