Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo, on Sunday congratulated Mohammed Abdullahi Farmajo on his election as President of the Federal Republic of Somalia.


In a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mr. Laolu Akande, the Acting President also congratulated the people of Somalia on the successful conclusion of their electoral process.

He described the process as an important step in consolidating democracy and fully restoring law and order in the country.

He said Nigeria remained committed to supporting the peace, security, stability and development in Somalia and looks forward to working with Farmajo on other key areas of shared interests and mutual concerns such as the fight against terrorism and security-sector reforms.

In addition, the Acting President notes the successful efforts of the Somali security forces and the African Union Mission in Somali and their invaluable role in ensuring a safe and secure environment during the electoral process.

“This successful election is a landmark achievement for the people of Somalia in particular and Africans in general. It is remarkable that our continent is marching forward with democracy across all of its frontiers. This is a goal that we share with the people of Somalia,” Osinbajo said.
