On Monday, President Muhammadu Buhari in a phone conversation congratulated the President-elect of Gambia, Mr. Adama Barrrow on his electoral victory.
Before his departure for the International Forum on Peace and Security in Dakar, Senegal, President Buhari expressed his glee at the conduct of the contestants before, during and after the elections.
He further urged Mr. Barrow to ensure that the transition process is also as smooth as the electoral process and carry everyone along in his task of taking the Gambia to a new level.
The President also expressed his admiration at the existing rapport between the President-elect and other contestants especially the current President, who lost the election.
The Nigerian leader said democracy, rule of law and respect for each other are fast taking roots in Africa and that Gambia has also become a role model for Africa and the world at large.
