DEPUTY Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu has said that the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP will try to work with the President-Elect of the United States of America, USA, Mr. Donald Trump.
In a statement released by his Special Adviser on Media Affairs, Uche Anichikwu, on Wednesday, Senator Ekweremadu congratulated Trump on his victory in the U.S presidential election and said that emerging democracies, including Nigeria, must emulate the democratic and transparent nature of the U.S election. He noted that the will of the people and respect for democratic principles must be allowed at all times and also against the backdrop that the election was not inconclusive.
He said: “Mr. Trump has rightly described the election as historic. But it is not only historic for the U.S, but also for the world. It is an important reminder to the entire world of the true meaning and essence of democracy as government of the people.
“I urge him to work for democracy, global peace and prosperity because the peace and prosperity of America is intrinsic in that of the entire world.
“In particular, I urge better bilateral deals for Nigeria by the incoming Donald Trump presidency. I have no doubt that the people of Nigeria and indeed the People’s Democratic Party are willing and ready to work with the incoming U.S government for the good of both nations.
The PDP has not hidden its desire to take back the realm of power in 2019.
