Obasanjo also sent facilitations to the vice president-elect, Kamala Harris for becoming the first female vice-president of the U.S.

He said:

I felicitate with Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris as the first female Vice-President of the U.S. We in Africa are proud of her success.
The first African-American President of the U.S., Barrack Obama, has Kenyan DNA in him and I am reasonably sure that the first African-American female Vice President-Elect of the U.S. will have some Nigerian DNA in her as most of those taken to the Caribbean from Africa went from Nigeria of today."

Meanwhile, the US president-elect, Joe Biden has promised to be the president for all Americans whether they voted for him or not.
