African leaders have sent congratulatory messages to Joe Biden after U.S. media called a win for the Democratic Party candidate. In messages posted majorly on Twitter, leaders from across Africa sent congratulatory messages to the 77-year-old, who is to take leadership in January 2021.

Here are some of the messages from African leaders:

“Congratulations to US President-Elect Joe Biden on his election at a time of uncertainty and fear in world affairs. His election is a reminder that democracy is the best form of government because it offers the people the opportunity to change their government by peaceful means,” said Nigerian Muhammadu Buhari.

“We congratulate President-Elect @JoeBiden and Vice President

@KamalaHarris and the American people on your election. We look forward to working with you and deepening our bonds of friendship and cooperation,” said South African President Cyril Ramaphosa.
