PRESIDENT Muhammadu Buhari has joined other world leaders and well-wishers to congratulate German Chancellor, Angela Merkel, on her victory at the polls.

According to a statement issued by his spokesman, Femi Adesina, in Abuja on Monday, President Buhari felicitated with the German Chancellor’s party for producing leadership for the country for over 12 years and winning another opportunity to sustain the legacy of good work.

He recalled his interactions with Chancellor Merkel over the years, especially at the G8 meeting in 2015 and during his visit to Germany in 2016, coming away with a strong impression of her commitment to building stronger ties across the world.

President Buhari wished the German Chancellor a successful tenure.

Merkel was re-elected for a fourth term during last weekend’s election when her conservative CDU/CSU bloc experienced its worst result in almost 70 years but will remain the largest in parliament.
