President Bola Tinubu has congratulated Mr. Bassirou Diomaye Faye on his election as President of the Republic of Senegal.

The president, in a statement issued on Wednesday by his Media Adviser, Ajuri Ngelale, noted that President-elect Faye comes with great promise and a sterling record, wishing him success as he takes on this important job of leading the good people of Senegal.

President Tinubu also congratulated President Macky Sall for overseeing an election that has been widely adjudged as peaceful and transparent.

The president stated that the success of the presidential election in Senegal and the successful conduct of the general election in Liberia a few months ago have affirmed his long-held conviction that the taproot of democracy is deeply established in West Africa and will only grow stronger as it is watered by good governance, justice and fairness to all. 

As Chairman of ECOWAS, President Tinubu affirmed that the successful conduct of the Senegal election is a boost to the sub-regional organization in its efforts to promote peace and constitutional order, as well as strengthen ties among member states.

He also congratulated the people of Senegal and assured them of Nigeria’s best wishes and support.
