Former President Olusegun Obasanjo, has congratulated the winner of the United States of America, USA, Presidential election, Joe Biden, the Candidate of the Democratic Party,
Obasanjo, in a statement by his Media Assistant, Kehinde Akinyemi, described Biden’s win as a victory of good over evil.
Biden is projected to have defeated the Candidate of the Republican Party, President Donald Trump, having garnered more than 270 electoral college votes today.
Reacting, Obasanjo tasked Biden to “restore confidence in the role of America as the largest economy in the world, which has a very significant responsibility for the peace, security, stability, and progress of the world”, adding that, “the election was a victory of good over evil, which was for most people of the world”.
He lamented that “the majority of the people had watched helplessly, as the world was being pulled down”.
He stated: “Not that the world was perfect and equitable, but it was reasonably predictable with some measure of rule of law, and respect for international agreements and treaties.”
Obasanjo said that he is reasonably sure that the first African-American female Vice President-elect of the US, Kamala Harris, “will have some Nigerian DNA in her, as most of those taken to the Caribbean from Africa, went from Nigeria of today”.
