He was declared the winner of the controversial Nigerian presidential election held on April 21 2007, and was sworn in on May 29 2007. He is a member of the ruling People's Democratic Party (PDP).
- Is it with respect to the reference point of American elections? Or is it with respect to the 1999 elections or is it in respect to the 1983 elections in Nigeria or to the 2003 elections? So when people make statements, or even organizations, or even the U.S. State Department, they should qualify such statements and we know the reference point from which they are making their statement against. Once you know the reference point, then it will actually make sense.
- Myself, the government and people of Nigeria are inspired by the United States of America's achievement and the principles which guide it.
