Please accept my warm congratulations on your victory and my best wishes for your success as you prepare to take up the responsibilities and challenges of your high office.
As you embark upon your new responsibilities, I wish to assure you and the people of Nigeria of the continued friendship and sympathetic interest of the African people. Have followed your career for years and was excited to read about your recent appointment. You have always impressed me with your clear vision and ability to get the job done against the most formidable opposition.
I wish you the best in this new term of office.
