“I want to salute all Nigerians for their peaceful conduct during the election and for respecting the rule of law. Let me also salute Mr. President for accepting the outcome of the election and for calling and congratulating his opponent. That is a sign of maturity and it is a great act that must be commended” the actor told Punch in an interview.
Emeka Ike also congratulated the President-Elect General Muhammadu Buhari. “Sincerely, this election was not about Jonathan or Buhari; it was about Nigeria and Nigerians having the opportunity to decide their affairs.
