Buhari congratulates Brazil’s President-elect Lula Da Silva

President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated Brazil’s newly-elected President, Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, on winning a hard-fought, divisive run-off election.

Felicitating da Silva on staging an astonishing come-back after leaving office and serving jail term, President Buhari hoped that da Silver, as President, would further enhance the excellent relations between Brazil and Nigeria.

“I look forward to working together with the newly elected President of Brazil to continue the excellent bilateral cooperation and growing trade relations between our two countries,” the President added.
