Buhari congratulates Justin Trudeau on re-election


President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, on his election victory.

The President extended his goodwill message to the Canadian leader on Wednesday in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina.

“As a major trading partner, with Nigeria-Canada trade totaling $948.4 million in 2018, President Buhari looks forward to a continued relationship with Prime Minister Trudeau across a wide range of shared values and interests,” the statement said.

He noted the common membership of Nigeria and Canada in the Global Counter-Terrorism Forum and several other international organizations.

Buhari also expressed optimism that both countries would continue to stand together on issues of peace and security that guarantee a better and more secure world for all.

Justin Trudeau won a second term as Canada’s prime minister after the country’s federal election, with the Liberals clinching 156 seats, 14 short of the 170 needed for a majority in the 338-seat House of Commons.
