Buhari Congratulates South Africa’s New President, Ramaphosa

President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated South Africa’s new President Cyril Ramaphosa on his election and inauguration as Jacob Zuma’s successor.

Ramaphosa was elected by South Africa’s parliament on Thursday and sworn in shortly after, day after scandal-hit Jacob Zuma was forced to resign.

Following his inauguration, President Buhari is keen to work with him.

“Congratulations also to the African National Congress (ANC), and the Government and people of South Africa, on the peaceful transfer of power that resulted in the election of President Ramaphosa,” President Buhari tweeted in reaction to the development.

While congratulating Ramaphosa, President Buhari said he “looks forward to working with the new President of South Africa to enhance cooperation of the Governments of Africa’s two leading economies”.

In a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mr Garba Shehu, President Buhari wished Zuma well in his future endeavours.

“The Nigerian leader salutes the leadership and statesmanship of former President Jacob Zuma, and wishes him the best in his future endeavours,” the statement read in part.
