Nigeria’s Acting President Yemi Osinbajo, has congratulated Emmanuel Macron on being elected as the next President of France.

In a statement released by his media aide Laolu Akande, Osinbajo said he received the news of the election with satisfaction, noting that under successive governments, the relations between Nigeria and France had blossomed.


He expressed the optimism that the incoming government will further strengthen the bond of friendship between both countries.

Under the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari, there has been a very close collaboration between Nigeria and France in the war against terror, he said and commended the role played by France in the successes so far recorded in the implementation of the regional initiative against terrorism.


Prof Osinbajo observed that the 39 year-old’s election is a source of inspiration especially for the French people and portends a greater future in which the French Republic will continue to play its active role boosting relations with Europe, Africa and the rest of the world.

The Acting President then noted that the Buhari administration is looking forward to working closely with President-elect Macron to promote international cooperation, advance peace and security, consolidate mutual trade relations and strengthen economic partnership for the benefit of citizens of both countries.
