Nigeria: Jonathan Congratulates Mahama

President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan Monday congratulated President John Mahama of Ghana on his victory in last weekend's presidential elections in Ghana.

A statement by the spokesperson to President Jonathan, Dr Reuben Abati, said Jonathan applauded President Mahama's success in securing his people's mandate for a full term in office, following his assumption of Presidential powers after the death of his predecessor in July 2012, "as an endorsement by the Ghanaian electorate of his leadership and his party's action plan for further socio-economic development and continued consolidation of democracy in the country."

President Jonathan, who noted that the very keenly contested elections have been adjudged as free and fair by observers from the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) and other international observers, "on behalf of himself, the Government and people of Nigeria, President Jonathan salutes the people of Ghana for the successful conduct of the polls."
