Deputy Senate president of the 8th National Assembly, Ike Ekweremadu, has congratulated the winner of the 2016 presidential elections in the USA, Donald Trump.
Ekweremadu on Wednesday highlighted that his party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is willing to work with the billionaire businessman who will soon be inaugurated as the 45th United States president following Barack Obama’s completion of his tenure.
According to Ekweremadu:
“Mr. Trump has rightly described the election as historic. But it is not only historic for the U.S, but also for the world. It is an important reminder to the entire world of the true meaning and essence of democracy as government of the people.
“I urge him to work for democracy, global peace and prosperity because the peace and prosperity of America is intrinsic in that of the entire world.
“In particular, I urge better bilateral deals for Nigeria by the incoming Donald Trump presidency. I have no doubt that the people of Nigeria and indeed the Peoples Democratic Party are willing and ready to work with the incoming U.S government for the good of both nations.
“We have many lessons to learn from the American presidential election. It was highly democratic, transparent, peaceful, and free of intimidation, willful manipulations, contrived security scares; and it was absolutely conclusive, even though the ruling party was losing, and eventually lost.”
