Former Nigerian President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo has congratulated the 46th US President-elect, Mr. Joe Biden and his Vice-President-elect, Kamala Harris.
In a congratulatory letter, Obasanjo tasked the newly-elected president to restore confidence in the role of America as the largest economy in the world which has a “very significant responsibility for the peace, security, stability and progress of the world.”
He described the election as “a victory of good over evil” which was for most people of the world.
The former president lamented that the majority of the people had “watched helplessly as the world was being pulled down”.
According to him: “Not that the world was perfect and equitable but it was reasonably predictable with some measure of rule of law and respect for international agreements and treatise.”
Obasanjo, in the one page letter, said he was reasonably sure that the first Africa-America female Vice President-elect of the US, Kamala Harris “will have some Nigerian DNA in her as most of those taken to the carribean from Africa went from Nigeria of today” as he further congratulated the duo.
Biden defeated incumbent, President Donald Trump, in the November 3, 2020, presidential election to take the White House.
