In a telephone conversation between the two, President Buhari also congratulated President Youssoufou on the provisional outcome of the elections in which the candidate of the ruling party, Bazoum Mohamed of the Party for Democracy and Socialism, PNDS Tarayya, won with 55.75 per cent against the former President Mahamane Ousmane of the RDR Tchanji.
President Buhari joined international observers, including ECOWAS, the African Union, the United Nations missions and others in expressing satisfaction with the conduct of the elections.
