It was a sheer carnival in Abuja, Nigeria as General Muhammadu Buhari gave his victory speech after winning the 2015 Presidential elections in Nigeria. Buhari was magnanimous in victory, and made it clear that it was the Nigerian people who had voted him into office.

On the 1st of April, 2015 General Muhammadu Buhari defeated President Goodluck Jonathan in one of Nigeria's most tense elections. The vote had been postponed amid Nigeria's fight against Boko Haram, with many claiming that this was a tactic by current President Jonathan to make gains against the militant group in order to bolster his campaign.

This marks Buhari's second turn as Head of State, having ruled Nigeria as a military dictator between 1983-1985.

    Muhammadu Buhari, Nigerian President Elect: The good people of Nigeria, answered the call of history. When the account of this fine moment is written, it will be said that it was the people themselves who led this nation to democracy. You stood in line patiently for hours in the sun, rain and then in the dark to cast your ballots. Even when the vote was extended to Sunday in some places, you still performed your civic duty. You did so peacefully. You voted with your heart. Your vote affirms that you believe Nigeria’s future can be better than what it is today.
