Buhari's Message Resonates With Ours - MEND

The Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND) has congratulated Nigeria's president-elect, Muhammadu Buhari, on his recent victory over President Goodluck Jonathan in the 2015 presidential election.

The group made this statement through it's spokesman, Jomo Gbomo. He wrote: “The Nigerian people have spoken and elected General Mohammadu Buhari to be the next President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria,” adding, “In doing so, we have not only made the right choice of a new leadership, we have also reaffirmed the strength of our democracy.”

President-elect, General Mohammadu Buhari’s message of hope, freedom and opportunity resonates with our group, as it does with the Nigerian people.

In these difficult times, with the economic crisis and security challenges, we are confident that under your leadership, Nigeria will once again regain its peace and unity,” the group asserted.‎

MEND also praised President Goodluck Jonathan for his great compusure “in conceding defeat and setting precedence as the first ever incumbent Nigerian President to be defeated and concede defeat, without any interference.”

Buhari last night was declared winner of the election after four attempts. This is his second attempt at being the president of the nation.

Meanwhile the PDP have announced that they will be taking the elections to the tribunal court.
