UK congratulates Buhari, urges probe of alleged irregularities

The United Kingdom has felicitated with President Muhammadu Buhari on his electoral victory in last Saturday’s presidential election.


Buhari was declared the winner of the election in the early hours of Wednesday.


The opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has opposed the result, calling for a halt.


However, a statement from the United Kingdom’s minister of state for Africa, Harriett Baldwin, said the result declared by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) is consistent with Parallel Voters Tabulation (PVT) employed by the civil society for the election.


The UK government called on political actors pained by the election’s outcome to seek redress within the ambits of the law while ensuring peace and harmony.
