President Muhammadu Buhari congratulates William Ruto, the winner of Kenya’s general elections on August 9, 2022, on his victory.

Based on a long history of friendship, economic and trade ties, and successful collaboration through international organizations like the African Union, the United Nations, and the Commonwealth, President Buhari claims that Nigeria values Kenya as a strategic partner in the fight against terrorism and violent extremism.
