Source: starrfmonline.com - Nigeria’s President Goodluck Jonathan has called his main contender in the country's Presidential election Mohammadu Buhari to congratulate him for winning the yet-to-be declared presidential race of the country.
This was disclosed by Nigeria’s Aviation minister Osita Chidoka.
In a tweet Tuesday afternoon, Chidoka wrote: “President Jonathan congratulates Gen. Buhari in a phone call this evening”.
He also gave hints that Mr Jonathan will be addressing the nation after a meeting with his party officials.
Official declaration is, however, yet to be announced by the Independent Electoral Commission.
The 72-year-old stretched Mr Jonathan by about 2 million votes, a testament to the faith Nigerians have put in him as a born-again democrat intent on cleaning up Nigeria's perceived corrupt politics.
Incumbent President Goodluck Jonathan, whose five years in office have been plagued by corruption scandals and an insurgency by the deadly Boko Haram militia, polled about 11 million votes.
