The statement reads:
“Mr.
Trump has rightly described the election as historic. But it is not
only historic for the U.S, but also for the world. It is an important
reminder to the entire world of the true meaning and essence of
democracy as government of the people.
“I
urge him to work for democracy, global peace and prosperity because the
peace and prosperity of America is intrinsic in that of the entire
world.
“In particular, I urge better
bilateral deals for Nigeria by the incoming Donald Trump presidency. I
have no doubt that the people of Nigeria and indeed the Peoples
Democratic Party are willing and ready to work with the incoming U.S
government for the good of both nations.
“We
have many lessons to learn from the American presidential election. It
was highly democratic, transparent, peaceful, and free of intimidation,
willful manipulations, contrived security scares; and it was absolutely
conclusive, even though the ruling party was losing, and eventually
lost.”

Trump was declared winner of the November 8 elections after defeating Democrat, Hillary Clinton.
