Ghana’s former President and flag bearer of the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr John Dramani Mahama, has congratulated Mr Muhammadu Buhari on his re-election for a second successive term as President of Nigeria in the elections of Saturday, 23 February 2019.

“Congratulations to H.E. President Muhammadu Buhari, Vice-President Professor Yemi Osinbajo, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and all friends in the APC on your successful re-election for another 4-year term,” Mr Mahama posted on Facebook.


The 76-year-old incumbent president defeated his main rival, former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar, with a margin of nearly four million votes.

Mr Abubakar's People's Democratic Party (PDP) has rejected the result. Turnout was 35.6 per cent.

Delays and violence marred the run-up to the poll but no independent observer has cited electoral fraud so far.

Mr Buhari's All Progressives Congress (APC) won in 19 of the 36 states while the PDP was victorious in 17 states and in the capital, Abuja, according to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

The APC had 15.2 million votes while the PDP had 11.3 million.
