"An Inspiring Victory.

On behalf of the National Working Committee, and the entire
members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) of Nigeria, we
congratulate you and the US Democratic Party, on your
election as the 44th President of the United States of
America and the first African-American to be so elected in
the history of the United States.

The victory is highly remarkable and echoes the promise of a
better world for all.

It is truly memorable that the election not only brought out
the best in American democracy with more than 131 million
Americans voting, the highest in 44 years, but attracted
interest worldwide.

We at the Peoples Democratic Party are thrilled by the
extraordinary feat of the Democratic Party of the USA, the
organization, the mobilization, the sacrifices and optimism
that made the victory possible.

Indeed, there are important lessons in this US election for
all political organizations.

This achievement marks a new era, and we have no doubt that
you will offer inspirational leadership that will promote
democracy, freedom, peace, progress and brotherhood all over
the world.

Congratulations!

Prince Vincent Eze Ogbulafor, OFR
National Chairman, PDP

Alhaji Abubakar Baraje
National Secretary, PDP"
