President Buhari wishes Prime Minister Netanyahu a successful new term in office and prays that his record fifth term will bring enduring peace and security to the Middle Easter after his main rival conceded that he had lost the election.
According to reports, Netanyahu’s Likud Party captured 36 seats in the nation’s 120-seat parliament in a tight election race to continue his 10-year stretch in high office.
Netanyahu is expected to put together a coalition controlling 65 seats, keeping him in office.
Netanyahu’s Likud party and the Blue and White party led by former army general Benny Gantz, had tied with 35 seats each in the 120-seat house, the Knesset. However, the rightwing bloc that Netanyahu is part of had 65 in total, a comfortable majority.
Gantz said in a televised statement on Wednesday evening said he respect the decision of the people, adding that Blue and White had “founded a true alternative rule to Netanyahu”.
