Buhari, a former Nigerian army general who first won power three decades ago in a military coup, beat incumbent and main rival Goodluck Jonathan in a historic presidential election in Nigeria.

Mahama in a statement patted him on the back on his great victory and his contribution towards the peaceful conduct of the historic elections, "which marks an important milestone, not only in the democratic development of Nigeria but also the continent as a whole."

The President who doubles as the Chair of the ECOWAS Authority of Heads of State and Government also congratulated all the political stakeholders, electoral officials and the people of Nigeria for their belief and commitment to the strengthening of democracy and good governance.

President Mahama has commended President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan for his political maturity and statesmanship, describing his call to President-elect Buhari as “a mark of courage and a respect for the will of the Nigerian people.”

President Mahama hailed the Nigerian elections as a triumph for the new Africa that is emerging.
