President Bola Tinubu has congratulated Mahamat Déby on his presidential election victory.

Déby, Chad’s transitional president, was declared winner of the country’s presidential poll last week.

The Chadian National Election Management Agency said on Thursday that Déby won the May 6 election with over 61 percent of the votes cast, to beat Succès Masra, the incumbent prime minister and main opponent, who was said to have secured 18.5 percent.

In a statement issued on Sunday by Ajuri Ngelale, special adviser to the president, Tinubu said the successful conduct of elections in Chad underlines the commitment of the government and the people of Chad to democracy and orderly transitions in the region.

“The President assures President-elect Déby that Nigeria will continue to work closely with the Republic of Chad, as both countries seek to enhance peace, security, and shared prosperity for the mutual benefit of their peoples,” the statement reads.

“The President also calls for sustained, friendly cooperation between both nations, while wishing the President-Elect success as he undertakes this noble service to the people of Chad.”
